(Capsicum chinense ‘Trinidad Scorpion Chocolate’)
Heat Rating out of 10: 10+++
An extremely hot chilli that grows on a tall plant. This is heavy bearing and can yield 1.5-2kg of fresh fruit per plant during the chilli season. Heat varies from 1.1 to 2.0 million SHU.
Basil (holy, lemon, lime, green ruffles), garlic, ginger, coriander, galangal, turmeric, lemon grass and cumin. All meats and most vegetables along with coconut, lime and lemon go well with chillies.
Chillies form an integral part of many Asian and Latin American dishes along with some European, African and North American. Indeed, over time most cuisines have added this fiery little fruit into their recipes. There are many forms that vary in colour, shape, flavour and of course heat. Adding this extremely hot chilli will add a fiery heat to all cooked dishes and salsas. Harvest when fruit turns a chocolate brown colour and handle fruits with caution.
Plant in a protected spot out of fierce sunlight and wind in a well drained but moist soil. May need some support when it ages.
Regular applications of Seasol and PowerFeed will keep the plant looking good and producing lots of tasty chillies.
