Famed as the main ingredient of the well known hot chilli sauce, the Tobasco chilli has a distinctive smokey flavour, and a fair bit of kick measuring in at 30,000-50,000 Scoville Heat Units. It is thought to be the juiciest chilli.
The plant produces lots of erect growing bullet shaped chillies, that start at a pale green, before changing to yellow, orange and finally maturing to a scarlet red.
