One of the world’s hottest peppers! Ugly, but beautiful warted fruit sure packs a punch! This punishing pepper was developed by the Italian Pepper Lovers’ Association. Thanks to over 5 grueling years of breeding for intense heat, this super hot scorpion type pepper stands a chance to be a record breaker!
Scoville heat units (SHU): 1,400,000 – 2,200,000 SHU
Suggestions: Peppers need a warm soil and night temperature to prosper. They will stunt under 10C. Location should be sheltered from the wind and soil should be kept reasonably moist. Be sure to harden off the seedlings to reduce transplant stress. Harvest fruit early and often. The more you pick the more they will produce. Do not pull off fruit, rather cut from stems.
Pot size: Minimum 12″ per plant or plant in ground 12″ away from next plant.
