Here it is! We're thrilled to offer you the previously "Hottest Pepper on the Planet" record holder, the Butch T Trinidad Scorpion pepper seeds. It became world-famous when it broke all records in the Guinness Book of World Records back in 2011. The Scorpion Butch pepper is a very exclusive pepper and is very hard to find, but we love growing rare peppers! The chili is a Trinidad Scorpion strain, which we all have come to know as one of the hottest peppers in the world.

The Butch T Trinidad Scorpion pepper plant will grow to 3 ft. tall and produce bountiful crops. Although it's a finicky germinator, with some tender loving care, it will grow very well. Pods will typically grow to 2" long and have a scorpion-like shape, including the stinger. Butch T Scorpions mature from green to red and can have either shiny or wrinkly skin.

The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T pepper is HOT and will burn your mouth off, but once you get past the heat, you’ll find it tasty with its sweet, fruity flavors that are similar to the Trinidad Moruga or Carolina Reaper.

I wanted to wait and see how many seeds sprouted before reviewing, but I’m happy to say I had a very high success rate, about 80%. All of the seedling survived the move outside as well. No peppers yet but the plants are very healthy.

Getting Started

  • 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.
