Product Description & Reviews
Trinidad Scorpion peppers are absolute beasts. They rate approximately 1.46 million Scoville units on the heat index scale. They are called scorpion peppers not only for their hot sting to the taste buds, but because of their whip-like tale that resembles a scorpion's stinger. It's a perfect name for a pepper as hot as these. Like Ghost peppers, Habanero peppers, and the now famous Carolina reaper peppers, these Trinidad Scorpions are so hot that you basically have to eat them in extremely small doses. Most people dry them and add a touch to food, AND I MEAN A TOUCH! Tread lightly when handling. When touching the peppers you should wear gloves. The capsaicin has been known to penetrate one glove layer so you may have to double glove or keep changing them. By no means get any of the juice near you eyes or any children. You will hear from both if you do! As the Guinness Book of Records World's Hottest Pepper 2012, the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Pepper is a great addition to any collection for a hotter pepper lover. Grow them and save the seeds for next year!
