The BTR Butch T Reaper Scorpion pepper plant is an amazing variety created by Butch Taylor himself! The two-parent plants are a Trinidad Scorpion Butch T and a Carolina Reaper. One is a previous world record holder, and the other is the current world record holder! Safe to say you’d be growing one of the hottest peppers in the world with the BTR Butch T Reaper Scorpion plants.
This pepper has an appearance similar to a Moruga Scorpion, but with a much thinner outer wall. The final mature color of the pepper is almost a dark orange/red color. The flavor is very floral and citrus up front, with a burn like nothing we have ever tasted before! The heat is screamingly hot and packs a punch that will BEAT YOU UP, but if you love that kind of heat, then we can only say to grow it. It grows great in warm climates, as well as cooler climates seasonally. The bushy plant will grow to about 3 feet tall with extreme hot pods everywhere. This is great for powder, hot sauces, and anything else that you want a burning kick from the pepper itself.
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
