My wife buys seeds on line and germinates them on a grow table in our basement starting in March. This year our stock included Trinidad Moruga Scorpion peppers, the world’s hottest chilli. Last year’s hotness champ, the Ghost Chilli, rated 1,000,000 Scoville heat units–way more than Jalapenos at 5,ooo to 7,ooo SCUs and more than Habaneros at around 350,000 SCUs. The Scorpion scores a hair-raising 1,500,000 to 2,000,000 SCUs!
Watch me taste the first ripe Scorpion of the season on my Facebook page. (WordPress won’t accommodate the file type.)
