Just like the 7 Pot Lava Chocolate and 7 Pot Lava Yellow, this 7 Pot Lava Red Pepper is a cross between a Red Moruga and 7 Pot Primo. This molten masterpiece is not one to take lightly, as it is a super HOT pepper. It was first crossed by a grower in Tennessee named Judy, and it has a very high heat level like the other Scorpions. This strain hasn't been around for too long, so expect a bit of pod variation. The 7 Pot Lava Red pepper plant will grow to 3-4 feet tall, with peppers producing an insanely hot and somewhat fruity flavor. The peppers will mature from green to a red color. We have heard from reviewers that this pepper has the hottest immediate heat out of all the super hots, so this fruity menace doesn't play any games. This pepper works great for making hot sauce and mixing into soups!
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.
