About Hot Pepper Seeds - Trinidad Scorpion

Capsicum annuum

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed

Hailed as one of the hottest peppers in the world, Trinidad Scorpion Pepper Seeds grow red, wrinkled peppers that sport an ominous tail that resembles a scorpion. Dethroned as the hottest pepper by none other than the Carolina Reaper, the Trinidad Scorpion still retains its melt-your-face-off heat. Not to be played with, Trinidad Scorpion peppers mature from green to yellow, to orange, then finally to bright red color telling you they are ready to harvest.
