It has been said that the Trinidad Scorpion Red chilli peppers are as hot as the Naga Morich or Bhut Jolokia. The Trinidad Scorpion chillies ripen from green through orange to red. The skin is similar to the Bhut or Bih jolokia being slightly wrinkled and the peppers sometimes have a small tail, this is where they get the name Scorpion from. The Trinidad Scorpion red has a slightly fruity flavour. Seed of this variety is scarce and so we only have a small quantity of plants available. Caution - very hot pepper.
