Also known as the Lava Chocolate, this chocolate variety of the 7 Pot Lava peppers is believed to be the most pungent of all 7 Pot peppers. It is entirely different than the beloved lava chocolate cake, but you could add this pepper to give the delicious cake a twist! A cross between the Moruga Scorpion and the 7 Pot Primo, it was first crossed by a grower in Tennessee named Judy. The 7 Pot Lava Chocolate pepper plant will grow to 3-4 feet tall, and the pepper pods will have an evil-looking Scorpion look. This pepper delivers a sweet, fruity, molten heat that will knock you flat on your butt and just like other chocolate varieties, one can expect a smoky flavor. Have some milk near you!
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
