Does the name scare you? The Death Spiral pepper, or the Death pepper, is loaded with capsaicin oils that drip between the inner walls of the pepper. The inner skin of these peppers is light brown in color, which foreshadows the burn that is destined to hurt your mouth. Are you still scared?
It is a variant of the Naga Bubblegum Red cross made by grower Terry Smith in the United Kingdom. This pepper has a very quick burn and is hotter than most Naga types! The wrinkled Death peppers are fruity and floral with citrus undertones, and each pepper transforms into many different colors as they are ripening. The ripening stage starts from light green, peach, orange, and then finally a vibrant red color. Along with that, the plant will grow over 4 feet tall. This pepper is an exciting pepper to grow and deserves a spot in your garden or greenhouse!
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.
