A super-hot pepper, the 007 Pot Red is another variation of the 7 Pots. Native to the Caribbean, this pepper is a hybrid of the Trinidad 7 Pot and Naga Morich.
The 007 Pot Red peppers grow up to 2" long with an irregular, bumpy shape. Pods will produce a stinger as an indicator of their intense heat and will change colors from green to red at maturity.
The 7 Pot varieties are named for the ability to spice up 7 pots of stew with one pod. That being said, the 007 Pot Red pepper's taste is fruity, almost floral, but has serious heat that makes it ideal for drying and grinding into chili powder.

Keep the seeds moist (but not soaked) through the germination phase. They germinate best above 65 degrees (the ideal temperature is 75 to 85 degrees).
When seedlings start emerging, it's time to start transplanting! Begin transplanting pepper plant seedlings after the last spring frost in your area. We prefer to transplant our peppers into containers and raised beds before the hardening off process.
Make a hole in the soil about twice the size of the root ball, place the plant into the soil, and cover the root ball with the soil. Plant each plant 18-24 inches apart in a sunny, well-drained spot. Make sure to water them immediately so they don't die! They require at least 6-8 hours of sunlight each day.
Start the hardening process a couple of weeks before you plant your seedlings out into the ground. Place your seedlings outside for an hour and move your plants back indoors. Lengthen the hardening off time for 1-3 weeks.
Mix the fertilizer into the soil at planting and add more fertilizer during the growing season. Spread mulch (or chopped leaves, straws) around the plants to keep the soil and moist. Support each pepper plant with a stake or small tomato cage to support the weight of the pepper plant once it starts producing pods.
After examining peppers to make sure they are ripe, harvest peppers with clippers by cutting the stem close to the plant, and you now have peppers! You may eat them immediately (after they’re rinsed) or store them.

Update on my random seed that was 007 pot red. Amazing heat and spicy. I'm in Louisiana currently in December and this plant just won't stop growing. Next week will be very cold for us so I'll chop the plant down and save it for spring. I may have got lucky but this plant made around 70 peppers the first year. Absolutely amazing pepper, pepper joes came through finally
Amazing pepper growth honestly. I have this pepper plant in a small pot and still has about 75 peppers on it. Very good growth and I have them turning red now. I will let them grow as long as I can before winter hits. Can't wait to try my fist one but patiently waiting! The peppers range in size from medium to large. I see some growing larger than others. I'll save seeds for next year that this plant makes to stabilize it. Great seeds though!
I don’t know, because the seed never came up.
