From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection R8-Capsicum chinense-Release #8 on October 29, 2015 --- If you eat one of these peppers, you may truly feel the end of the world is coming!!! it is easy to see how this variety earned its name. This very special super hot variety was bred and recently released by the Italian pepper association AIASP. This is an absolutely beautiful Capsicum chinense super hot variety that is incredibly hot. The peppers often show a very elongated Scorpion phenotype (long thick tails that often exceed the length of the body of the pepper). the peppers can be really pimpled with all kinds of contorted shapes / looks! This variety ripens to bright red and is one of the hottest varieties Christopher has eaten over the years. We believe the seeds being offered represent either the F5 or F6 generation.
