Moruga Scorpion (Capsicum Chinense)-The Moruga Scorpion is from the Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. It was formally announced on February 6, 2012 at the Chile Pepper Institute Leadership dinner to have tested at a high of 2,009,231 Scoville Units. A NEW WORLD RECORD! This test was done using seeds from my plants. The average heat of all testing combined for the Moruga Scorpion was 1,207,764 Scoville Units. So what you grow could get over 2,000,000 but most likely will be lower that that. Same as other records. The records always show the highest number but that is not the norm or average.
The surface of it's outer skin is rough and pebbly like the Trinidad 7 Pot chile varieties and one would say it looks like the texture of the human brain. Average size of the pods is slightly bigger than a golf ball.
These peppers are loaded with Capsaicin and you can actually see droplets form on it's extra thick placental tissue after cutting the pepper open. The flavor is described as fruity and floral and heat builds long after eating. You are buying 5+ Dried Scorpion peppers. Handle with caution and keep away from pets and children.
