Also known as the Ice Cream Scorpion, this pepper has a great flavor with a hint of vanilla and grapefruit citrus. The I Scream Scorpion pepper has slightly less heat than other Scorpions, the Scoville on this one ranges from 200,000 - 500,000.

I Scream Scorpion peppers grow on 2-3 ft. tall pepper plants. You'll notice peppers beginning to form, taking a similar shape to their Scorpion counterparts and extending up to 3" long. Note: these peppers are slow to germinate and may take as long as four weeks to sprout, and may take 175 days to harvest. The I Scream Scorpion matures from green, to light yellow, to dark yellow with hints of orange. You can tell how dangerous this pepper is with its scorpion tail, and you may scream because of how hot it is!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • 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.
