Originating from Italy, this destructive pepper will leave you speechless. We’re not kidding here. We have tasted the Apocalypse Scorpion and let me tell you, it can do some damage. Just when you thought the heat would subside, it comes right back. Expect a heat similar to the Carolina Reaper with a wonderfully unique flavor that will knock you flat on your butt and send the in-laws home crying.
The Apocalypse Scorpion pepper plants will grow over 4 feet tall and its pods mature to a red color. These peppers are burning hot with fruity tones and will grow the mighty scorpion tail that will sting you. Make sure to use this in moderation as small pieces of this pepper will add enough flavor that can’t be matched nor duplicated.
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.
