Trinidad Scorpion

Trinidad Scorpion

This is a most interesting looking chilli with it Scorpions’ sting like tail, they are part of the Species Chinense, I have not seen a confirmed Scoville rating yet for this chilli, but it is rumoured to be not far short of the Naga.

The pendant pods grow to between 3 – 8 cm long, ripening from green via orange to red, they have a unique scorpions tail to the pod.

We have been sent some seeds from The Chilli Pepper Company and intend to grow them as our 2010 experiment we will keep you updated monthly on our progress. Please let us know if you are growing any and how you are getting on.

Hi. I bought baby plant in spring and supposed to be scorpion chili. But since it grown up my fruit don’t even look like Buch-T or Maruga scorpion. Rather look like cayenn or kam paw chili. But has ugly dimple like surface. I’m trying to find out what my chili realy is. Can you help me?
