The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, indigenous to the district of Moruga in Trinidad and Tobago, is the WORLD'S 2nd HOTTEST CHILLI PEPPER. According to the New Mexico State University Chili Institute, the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion ranks at2,009,231 SHUon the Scoville scale, making it the 2nd hottest pepper in the world to date. The golf ball-sized pepper topped more than 1.2 million units on the Scoville heat scale, while fruits from some individual plants reached 2 million heat units.
Important to Note.
Chilli peppers can be tricky to germinate and especially so with the rarer super hot varieties patience is needed as they can take up to 40 days to germinate in ideal conditions. We also recommend that a heat pad is used when germinating chillies of the Capsicum chinense species. All of our chillis are grown in isolation to avoid cross pollination. As chillis are rampant cross pollinators it is not uncommon for variances to appear in the fruit as chillis can cross pollinate with fruit from plants a few houses or kilometres away. The only way to ensure with 100% certainty that cross pollination does not occur is to use pollination bags on each flower when the plant starts to bud and before the flowers open.
