One of the extremely rare, hottest peppers that can intensely sting you from the first bite, this is an impressive pepper variety to grow in the comfort of your garden. If you love sweet flavors and scorching heat –  the Yellow Scorpion pepper is for you! The Yellow Trinidad Scorpion pepper seeds grow into big pepper plants with bright yellow pepper pods that have slightly wrinkled skins. This is a natural variant of the classic Trinidad Scorpion but with slightly less heat. We say there is less heat, but this will still give you that ripping Scorpion heat! The flavors are sweet and fruity, which are lovely to use in hot sauces, chilis, marinades, salsas, and pasta dishes.

The pepper ripens from green to golden yellow during the ripening stage, and the pods will be slightly bigger than the Red Trinidad Scorpion peppers. Kinfolk to the Butch T Trinidad Scorpion, this is a productive variety so you will be rewarded with many pods. This is a nuclear hot pepper so caution with care!

Fun Fact: The original variety, the Red Trinidad Scorpion, was the hottest pepper in the world in 2012! This pepper lost its crown to the Carolina Reaper.

The whole pack of seeds never germinated. Could be the pods I used, but nothing grew beyond a very weak seedling.

Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85*. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have!
