Trinidad Scorpion Butch T is recognized as the world's hottest pepper by Guinness Book of World Records in 2011. The Trinidad Scorpion "Butch T" measured as high as 1,463,700 Scoville. In our taste test it was just as hot as Yellow Brain Strain! It is named Butch T because the seeds originally came from Butch Taylor. 

Pods are 2” long and 2-1/2” wide with smoother skin than other Trinidad Scorpions. Sometimes it will grow a long scorpion tail. It has fruity and floral like flavor with crazy heat. These super hot peppers are perfect for adding to salsa recipes or to make hot sauce! Plants are 3’ tall. Capsicum chinense (120 days)

Warning: Handling this pepper requires extreme caution. Wear hand, eye and breathing protection. 

Heat Level: Extreme, Severe and Intense.  Scoville Heat Units 1,000,000 

~ Packet contains 10 seeds. 

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are red.


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Nearly 100% Germination, wow!

We kept our Trinidad Scorpion Butch T seeds warm and we had nearly every seed sprout! We even pulled out the extras to transplant into their own pots so that we could have more peppers. Next time we'll just try one seed per pod. I will note: some of them sprouted right away, while others took awhile. But ever since we started using a seedling heat mat, we've had great success with all of Sandia's pepper seeds!

We grow these Trinidad Scorpion Butch T peppers to use in hot sauce and to add to salsas, it adds a great fruity kick, but a little goes a long way.
