Possibly the world's hottest pepper! 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! Our head seedsman Martin Walsh and Garden Manager Kendall Slaughter worked together to grow and test this variety for a Scoville Heat Unit rating. Using a few techniques like pre-harvest defoliation and a special fertilization schedule, the team was able to produce a pepper that reached a whopping 1.22 Million scovilles! We believe that a late season rain may have cooled the peppers off and with better irrigation restriction, this variety could easily reach over 1.5 million and perhaps even surpass the current world record holder! Plants reach 4 feet tall and produce an abundance of fiery peppers.

What are the pros? Color, easy to grow, large pod
What are the cons? Slow start
Peppers come up just like the pictures. A little slow to start but worth the wait. Pods are HUGE. Great tail and puckering. Very hot. Will grow again.

What are the pros? Great production and flavor.
What are the cons? Cleaning
Zone 7b. This may be my favorite super hot pepper. The common flavor I get from most is a fruity almost citrus type flavor. While I like the heat from the Ghost and Trinidad scorpions the flavor has always left a little to be desired. These, while they still have a hint of that are nothing like others I have grown. These will be a go to in my garden unless I find something better. I had 100 percent germination in soil blocks with a heat mat. The plants are productive and beautiful. They are slow to mature but so are other super hot peppers I have grown. My soil for peppers is just barely on the acid side and Arkansas weather generally allows for near drought like conditions so watering is easily restricted. Bugs don’t seem to want anything to do with them but I never have had a problem with bugs on other hot peppers either. The only con to these I can think of is cleaning them. The folds in the skin may hide a little dirt. Thank you Baker Creek!

What are the pros? Heavy producer
What are the cons? None
I started these indoors with all of my other peppers in November. The germination rate was great! They have taken awhile to start to really produce but now all of my plants are loaded! Im starting to get ripe fruit finally at the end of July. The shape seems to vary but I do have several pods that look like the picture on the seed pack. Like most super hot peppers they are very bumpy but they also have small thorn like spikes on them! They look mean and they are! Very intense heat and a great flavor. I cant wait to make hot sauce out of these! I will be adding these to my garden from now on.

What are the pros? Good Germination Rate
What are the cons? Slow Growers, but to be expect
So far So good with these little Devils... I am doing a test run with these, and began with 7 Seeds which I prepped & germinated using the method of refrigerating the seeds for a few days, then soaking them in room temp Black Tea for 30 minutes, before sewing them 1/8 deep in moistened Starter Mix filled cups (Jiffy).. I also had the cups sitting on a Heat Matt set at 80,,degrees
6 of the 7 Seeds sprouted, which was excellent for Super-Hots.. They are slow growers, like most of the Peppers in this class, though much quicker than Carolina Reapers.. Within 2 Months, they had grown large enough to produce their Y, at which time I topped them... They are now sending out all kinds of side-shoots, and taking the shape of a small bush.. Really looking forward to see how these go.. As for rating this Pepper.. I gave the 5 Stars for Germination Rate, and the 3 Stars are really dependent on your own experience & skill growing Super Hot Peppers..
