The Trinidad Scorpion Pepper is kinfolk to the Butch T Trinidad Scorpion but without the Scorpion tail. Without the tail, this creates more pepper flesh to enjoy the volcanic heat, which stings like a scorpion.
The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion is one of the world’s hottest peppers, and the Scorpion peppers are not to be messed with! If you enjoy growing superhot peppers and don’t mind the heat, then the Trinidad Scorpion chili is perfect for you!
Scoville heat units (SHU): 1,200,000 – 2,009,000 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.
