One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Once a year GrayC gets her packing crate from Avery Island, Louisiana
Geniune Tobasco brand peppers, Capsicum frutescens var. tobasco. The seeds are all grown on Avery Island as a proprietary trade secret. Pepper production is distributed among various sites in Central and South America. I'm thinking uniformity of peppers allows for uniformity of flavor. These plants will go out in the Herb Garden along with other interesting selections.
