Super hot pepper, in the Guiness Book of World Records as the hottest until just recently. Eat one of these and you will feel like you have been stung by a scorpion! Hotter than Bhut Jolokia and Naga Morich. Tested at over 1,400,000 scoville units. Fruits are bumpy, start green and ripen to orange and then red, when they are hottest. Most have a little tail, which is where they get the Scorpion name. The Moruga is one of the hottest strain of Scorpions. From the island of Trinidad, selected by Butch Taylor from Zydeco Sauces. Quite productive where they have enough heat. Probably about 80 days to produce green, longer for red. Plants start small but make a large bush once summer gets hot.
Caution! Please handle these peppers as though they were fire, because they are! Wear gloves and eye protection, and wash your hands with lemon juice before touching anything. Please act responsibly regarding sharing with others. The burn from these on eyes or other sensitive areas is excruciating.
Within 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the date to any other shipping week. Just respond to the e-mail and tell us when you want your plants. Our first shipping date is late March, weather permitting. We will not have plants available before then.
Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.
Our plants are shipped in individual 3″ deep pots, and are ready to be planted out in your garden.
We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.
We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through May, according to your location or your request. We currently ship to every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
