From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection R8--Release #8 on October 29, 2015 --- Over the last 5+years, Trinidad Scorpion has become a recognized household name among hot pepper enthusiasts. There are varieties such as Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Red that held the Guinness Book of World Records title for some time. This special Scorpion strain being offered is considered to be the one that started it all. This seed arrived to Christopher many years back from an old friend in Tobago. In fact, this was the same person who Christopher obtained the famous Trinidad Scorpion Moruga Blend red from and spread it throughout the world! This Scorpion being offered was said to be the official Scorpion by the Caribbean Agricultural Research Development Institute (CARDI). If you're looking to grow what Trinidad/Tobago feels is the true strain, here's your chance. The plants put out very uniform pods that have a very small tapered point at the end and ripen deep red. Did we mention they are blistering hot?
