As the name hints, this pepper can sting like a scorpion. If you wish to add the hottest peppers to your growing list, be sure to add the Trinidad Scorpion pepper to the list as it is one of the world’s hottest peppers! This popular pepper was discovered by Butch Taylor, aka Butch T, as he was going through his patch of Trinidad Scorpion peppers. What is great about this plant is it can produce bountiful crops, and the Trinidad Scorpion plant can grow to over 3 feet tall. This is an unforgiving pepper because it provides an unrelenting heat that is scorching hot, but gives you an opportunity to enjoy the volcanic heat. You can expect a flavor of insane heat with a bit of fruity flavor.
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.
