Trinidad Moruga Scorpion

Trinidad Moruga Scorpion

Look at all the hot capsacin inside this pepper!

Capsicum chinense (120 days) 
Pods are 2-1/2" wide with wrinkled reddish orange skin.
They have a fruit like flavor, with nuclear heat! This pepper contains so much capsacin that the chemical blasts past the numbing response and keeps activating receptors in the nerve endings in your mouth. This produces ferocious burning sensations. Chile burns and heat burns are similar at the molecular, cellular, and sensory levels.
Warning: Handling this pepper requires extreme caution. Wear hand, eye and breathing protection.
Heat Level: Extreme, Severe, and Intense. 
Scoville Units: >2,000,000
