This gnarly pepper variety is named for its ability to resemble a brain! The Brain Strain, also known as the 7 Pot Brain Strain, is part of the 7 Pot Pepper family that is known for its scorching heat, and this pepper variety is no exception. This is not a hybrid pepper but instead was developed using selective breeding to use particular desired traits. In 2010, David Capiello (a hot pepper growing hobbyist) from North Carolina, obtained these seeds from a grower in Trinidad & Tobago.

The 7 Pot Brain Strain pepper plant is very productive and stretches up to 3-4 ft. tall. Believe to be similar and closely related to the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, the 7 Pot Brain Strain peppers will grow up to 2" long and be wrinkly and bumpy with a "brain-like" look. In our opinion, this may be the coolest hot pepper you can grow in your garden! Pods will ripen from green to a striking red color when they reach maturity.

This hefty super hot pepper has volcanic heat and more placental tissue than other peppers, almost as hot as the Carolina Reaper. We must warn you that this could be the hottest of the 7 Pot Pepper family! Try using this pepper for soups and stews for their smoky flavors!
