From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection R5--Release #5 on December 9, 2014. This beautiful Capsicum annuum produces small 1/2 inch bullet shaped pods that ripen to a bright yellow color. We are not sure how it earned the name Tobasco as it is not a Capsicum frutescens such as the mainstream type. However, the pods have a fruity taste and heat is very respectable. This is another great variety for stir frys, curry dishes or other general use.
