Our Black Scorpion Tongue seeds are going on 5 generations of growth and careful selection. It's unclear who provided these ultra-rare peppers. But what we do know is that Black Scorpion Tongue peppers have beautiful exotic colors that will shine as amazing ornamental plants in your garden!

Black Scorpion Tongue pepper plants are very beautiful, having dark foliage and growing anywhere from 2-3 ft. tall. Keep in mind to have a plant stake available as the branches could get heavy with many of these 1-2" long tongue-shaped pepper pods. Black Scorpion Tongues will ripen from dark purple, yellow, and orange, to then dark red. In some cases, they have tiger-striped markings in between the ripening stage!

The heat on these small chiles is sizzlin' as the Black Scorpion Tongue comes in at 50,000-100,000 SHUs. They have a hot jalapeño upfront burn before burning your tongue, but their fruity (almost apple-like), floral flavors will be worth the burn. These are productive pepper plants with peppers that are great for pickling, sauces, and salsa. A very beautiful plant that we highly recommend for any-chili-loving home!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
