The Naga Viper chili has an interesting background. It was created in Cumbria, a small county in England, and is a 3-way cross of the Naga Morich, Bhut Jolokia, and Trinidad Scorpion. Some say the 7 Pot pepper was also involved in creating this. Even though this pepper appeared in the Guinness Book of World Records as one of the hottest peppers in the world, it was discovered that it was not grown out for 8 full generations to make it a completely stable variety. Any way you look at, it when you grow it, you’ll have HOT peppers.

Naga Viper pepper plants produces pods that grow to 3-1/2" long with medium-thin flesh and a saucer shape (similar to a Purple UFO) with a stinger at the end. Watch these peppers ripen from green to orange, then to a bright engine red color when they are ready for harvesting.

You'll notice the fruity and sweet flavors of the Naga Viper before the extreme heat kicks in! This super hot variety is best used dried, but if you're brave enough, try adding these peppers to cooked meals, using very little to add a lot of heat!
