The 7 Pot Merlot is not just another pepper that exceeds the 1 Million+ SHU's club. Its color shift is very unique compared to other super hot peppers. You may have figured out that the vibrant merlot color is what gives this hot pepper its name. These peppers ripen from green to purple, then purple to a deep red/merlot color.
We are not quite sure about the origins of this pepper, but we can tell you to expect a very pungent scent and a floral bite. Best used to make hot sauce and chili!
