Pepper Hot, Death Spiral

88% of 100

A gorgeous and intense pepper with a twisted shape that ranks among the world’s hottest! We were introduced to his little scorcher by extreme pepper expert, Jim Duffy of Refining Fires Chiles. The menacing fruit is contorted and wrinkled with a fierce little scythe-shaped tail. Jim developed this pepper after noticing a variant of the Naga Bubblegum Red chili (the seeds of which he received from English grower Terry Smith) growing among his plants in 2016. He reports that this pepper has a floral flavor and intense mouth burn that hits the tongue, gums and roof of the mouth.
