Chilli Varieties

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.

I found this in one the green houses at West Dean’s Chilli Fiesta this year

Michael's Magic

Michael's Magic

On the information tag was the following:-

‘Michael’s Magic’
This variety was donated back in the mists of time by an officer (called Michael) in the army. He’d collected it from an exotic market place, don’t know where or when. It’s a glorious beast which ripens colourfully and early each season. So keep your eyes open when travelling abroad you might find a special chilli yourself.

So keep an eye out when you next go on an exotic holiday..
