Trinidad Scorpion, Chocolate Hot Pepper
90 days. Capsicum chinense. A beautiful take on the classic Trinidad Scorpion pepper. This stunning cocoa-colored chili pepper may be about 100 times hotter than the jalapeno. We recommend wearing gloves when harvesting and to be cautious eating it raw. The short, stubby, 2 inch long, wrinkled, chocolatey-brown-red peppers are borne on productive plants. The peppers have a more mellow, less acidic flavor with smoky undertones and hints of a nice earthy sweetness -- perfect for hot, hot sauces!
