The Caramel Trinidad Scorpion Moruga pepper was declared the hottest chili pepper in the world in 2012, and there's no surprise why! A rare variety of the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga (former world record holder at 1.2 million SHUs), this super hot pepper has a burn that will stick around with you for a few days!

This pepper plant is fairly prolific and can grow to 4 feet tall. Producing wonderfully gigantic, super hot 3" pods, this variant starts out green and takes forever to ripen to caramel - but man, is it worth it!

The Trinidad Moruga Caramel has a sweeter, fruity taste before the blistering heat kicks you in the throat. With heat levels surpassing 1,200,000 SHUs, this is a super-hot pepper you must try! Use it as a dried chili powder, or make for a fiery pepper hot sauce!

Superior genetics

I bought my seed packet a bit before November of 2022. I wanted to start early, so I started in November. Fast forward to now, July 2023, these pepper plants are freaking huge. Reaching 6 ft tall, and branching out 3 ft. The pods are also huge. They take a long time to mature, but it is worth it. I'm keeping one to overwinter to sell future pods/seeds. I wish I could upload pictures!

  • 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.
