Our Black Scorpion Tongue seeds are going on 5 generations of growth and careful selection. The ultra-rare, unique pepper pods are often changing colors from dark purple, yellow, orange, to then dark red. In some cases, they have tiger-striped markings in between the ripening stage! These are productive pepper plants with peppers that are great for pickling, sauces, and salsa.

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 ornamental type plants grow to the average ornamental size of 2-3" tall and once at full maturity will be loaded with tongue-shaped pods that grow to an inch in diameter. Just keep in mind to have a plant stake available as the branches could get heavy. Foliage is a deep purple with green streaks. A very beautiful plant that we highly recommend for any-chili-loving home!

Great Pepper

I grew these last year. My plant was over 5ft tall and a beautiful purple color with small dark leaves. I literally got over 1000 pods off the one plant. The pods are on the smaller side with most of them a half inch wide by 2 inches long or smaller. They have a very sharp burn and I didn't taste floral notes. I smoked them and the paprikas I grew whole until dry and then ground in a coffee grinder. It made some of the most delicious pepper powder I have ever eaten. My wife literally puts it on everything. What a beautiful plant. I plan on growing three of them this year in a 100 gallon pot so we don't run out of powder lol.

My seeds germinated, has not been long enough to grow and produce but I will say that one of my plants had a couple leaves that looked like a purple flame emoji LOL
