Feast your eyes on one of the hottest peppers in the world! The Trinidad Scorpion pepper once held the distinguished honor as the world's hottest pepper, before it was dethroned by the current record holder, the Carolina Reaper. Nevertheless, Scorpion peppers provide some volcano-level heat that's not to be messed with!

These pepper plants grow up to be 3 ft. tall and produce many yields of these super hot pepper pods. This variety is kinfolk to the Butch T Trinidad Scorpion, with many similarities between the two except Trinidad Scorpion peppers do not have the little tail sticking out of the bottom. This creates more pepper flesh for capsaicin, or the chemical responsible for the heat in peppers, to develop. Trinidad Scorpion peppers mature from green to yellow, to orange, then finally to bright red color. The Scorpion Chilli grew very well for us in all test gardens, so you will enjoy growing this in your garden. The Trinidad Scorpion hot pepper grows well in Texas, Arizona, Florida, and all hot areas.

The heat on this pepper is so strong, it feels like your tongue is being stung by a scorpion! Heat levels can reach as high as 2,000,000 SHUs, so we urge you to be careful handling these peppers no matter how you use them. If your taste buds aren't completely singed off, you might be able to taste the delectable fruity flavors that come with Scorpion peppers. If you enjoy growing super hot peppers and don’t mind the heat, then the Trinidad Scorpion chili is perfect!

  • 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.
