Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T” – 1,463,700 SHU ...

It is all very exciting when we get a new record Chilli variety reported here at the ChileFoundry HQ and the news that the Trinidad Scorpion at hit 1,463,700 SHU, but did anyone know why it was called the “Butch T” ?

The story goes that Butch Taylor from Louisiana obtained from seeds from a seed bank  for the Trinidad Scorpion. He grew the plants and the pods where smaller and more consistent in shape then expected with most having the “Scorpion Tail” from which the Trinidad Scorpion gets its name.

Butch saved seeds from these plants and he sent them to other interested growers around the world, Including Neil from The Hippy Seed Co. in Auz.

If you know any more about this history of the Chilli, please let us know.

P.S. Don’t forget you can win a packet of seeds and grow this yourself just click here
