A very rare chilli pepper, this variety is from the Chaguanas area of Trinidad. In Caribbean regions it is also known as the Trinidad Scorpion and Trinidad 7 pot as one pod is said to provide enough heat to spice up 7 pots of stew. Pods are Habanero like in shape but have the characteristic 'pimpling' as found on another fearsome variety - the Naga Morich. These are incredibly difficult to find as they are not commercially grown. Whilst ranked 2nd on the Scoville Scale, the highest heat level ever recorded in a scoville test was recorded by the Trinidad 7 Pot. Highly recommended to handle with plastic gloves! Scoville rating at around 900 000 scoville units.
