The Bleeding Borg 9 chili pepper comes with a bit of history: Jon Harper, an expert grower from the United Kingdom, created this pepper. This is a cross between the 7 Pot Bubblegum and Naglah (Bhut Jolokia x 7 Pot Douglah). We’re not sure why it’s called the Borg 9, but some say it was named after the actor Ernest Borgnine. What we do know is he included the word ‘bleeding’ into the name because he created the 7 Pot Bubblegum which the color of the pepper bleeds up the calyx and the stem.

Bleeding Borg 9 pepper plants can grow to 4 feet tall and produce over 100 peppers in a season. The 2" pods are very wrinkly, maturing to their vibrant red color at maturity.

These hefty super hot peppers won't make you bleed, but you may tear up. Those who accept the challenge brought forth by these hogs will be rewarded by the unique fruity and slightly floral flavors, as well as dripping capsaicin oils. As always, most red super hot chiles go well in hot sauce as well as any type of beef-centric soups. The Bleeding Borg 9 in powder form, makes an amazing spicy seasoning!

  • 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.
