The C3PO is an interesting super hot pepper with a very long parentage. It was named after the Star Wars robot, where its origin began with the variants of the Jigsaw cross that was created in Finland. Originally it was nicknamed Vader Jigsaw because there were mysterious variants that came into play to create this super hot pepper. The Moruga Scorpion’s variants appeared from the Jigsaw, and then a grower named Michael experimented with the chocolate version. Illinois grower, Mike Hess, then grew the Vader Jigsaw seeds, and he created a more caramel variant that resembled a 7 Pot Primo with a sweeter flavor. Hess then decided to keep the Star Wars theme going, so he named the pepper C3PO! He discovered that the heat level was identical to the Moruga Scorpion, which we know is a dangerous super hot pepper

The C3PO pepper plants will grow to around 3-4 ft. tall, but make sure to take care of the plants consistently for the best results. The pepper is a caramel-red colored pod that looks like the 7 Pot pepper. The C3PO pepper is very wrinkly, scrunched up, and looks slightly evil. It has a strong heat and the tiniest amount of fruity sweetness. Keep in mind that this is a young cross, so it won’t be 100% stable when you grow this. It will grow into many variations, but we think that’s the fun part about it!

If you're looking to use this super hot pepper, try drying them into an incredibly hot pepper powder, or infusing these peppers into your next hot sauce. We recommend wearing latex gloves when handling peppers with this type of heat!
