Super Hot Pepper Seeds
It seems everywhere you look lately, you can find offers for extremely hot pepper seeds on Amazon, Ebay, etc.
We have held back from offering these seeds in the past because the truth is, they are somewhat hard to germinate compared to commercial varieties, they seem to cross pollinate easily if you aren't extremely diligent in isolating them from other peppers and by the way, they are extremely hot!
And by hot we mean eye watering, mouth scalding hot, we will not handle the seeds or pods without latex gloves on, and sometimes the capsaicin will even penetrate these.
We offer good seeds that should bear out true plants, and offer the same satisfaction guarantee on these as we do all of our other five thousand plus seed selections.
So enjoy, and be careful!
Please Remember! Some super hot pepper types take
different lengths of time to germinate. Some super hot varieties can
take 3 or more weeks longer that normal types, in fact, some varieties of Bhut Jolokia can take up to six weeks in our trials.
Use a heat mat when germinating super hot pepper seeds if possible. They require temps at 85 and above and can require up to 3 weeks for germination. We find that we get a bit better germination if we refrigerate seeds for about a week prior to planting.
These are the hottest pepper varieties in the world, please wear gloves when handling seeds!
PEP700 Carolina Reaper
Guinness Book of World Records 2013 World's Hottest Pepper.
This is the most requested seed lately, we are happy to have found a grower that can provide true seeds.

It surprisingly has a somewhat sweet taste, if you can survive the heat long enough to enjoy it!
PEP701 Peach Bhut Jolokia
This is a natural variant of the red Bhut Jolokia pepper.
Peppers grow about four inches long, sometimes up to six inches, and ripen from green to a light pink color and will turn more of a light orange color if left to ripen too long and have over a million scoville heat range. The heat level is extreme and they are just as hot as the red version. However they have a more smoother slightly fruity taste.
PEP702 Orange Bhut Jolokia
A natural orange variant of the regular Bhut Jolokia. It's very prolific and the plant stays relatively small.
A great producer of smooth orange pods, looking somewhat like elongated habaneros, scoville units said to be in the 1.2 million range.
PEP704 Bhut Orange Copenhagen
This is an orange variant of the Bhut Jolokia. It was discovered in 2009 in Copenhagen, Dennmark by a grower named Soren Friis Larsen, who discovered orange colored peppers on his plant and grew it out for successive years.
The fruits of the Bhut Orange Copenhagen are usually shorter than average Bhut Jolokias.
They have a nice bright orange color with nice fruity tones and a scalding heat level. The heat level is much hotter than the Yellow Bhut Jolokia. They are very prolific.
The Bhut Jolokia Orange Copenhagen chile plants can grow up to 4 feet tall.
PEP705 Chocolate Bhut
This is a variant of the Bhut Jolokia with a SHU range well north of a million. It differs a little from the Chocolate Bhutlah in our opinion due to the sweet undertone it has, and is a bit more prolific plant. It should be noted that the seeds can take up to six weeks to germinate, so have patience.
PEP741 Giant Chocolate Bhut
More bang per pepper! This is the giant version of the Chocolate Bhut. This is a variant of the Bhut Jolokia with a SHU range well north of a million. It differs a little from the Chocolate Bhutlah in our opinion due to the sweet undertone it has, and is a bit more prolific plant.

PEP740 Giant Red Bhut
A whole lot of heat in one pepper. This is the giant version of the Bhut Jolokia with a SHU range well north of a million. It differs a little from the Giant Chocolate Bhutlah in our opinion due to the sweet undertone it has, and is a bit more prolific plant. It should be noted that the seeds can take up to six weeks to germinate, so have patience.
PEP706 Yellow Bhut Jolokia
The Yellow Bhut Jolokia is a natural variant of the Red Bhut Jolokia, but it has a slightly different flavor and makes more peppers per bush than the red. It actually has a somewhat citrusy flavor, and being a Bhut, it is extremely hot.
We do not have an exact scoville unit on this plant, but you should wear gloves when handling the seeds, it is that hot.
PEP707 MOA Scotch Bonnet Jamacian Mushroom
The original seeds came from the Ministry of Agriculture ( MOA ) in Jamacia.
This variety is excellent when pickled in combination with the red version of mushroom, and mixed with colored bell peppers.Very aromatic pineapple like flavor with clean heat without any bitterness. The firm crunchy flesh makes it perfect for fresh eating and cooking. This pepper is also the most pickled and used pepper in Jamaica.
PEP708 Moruga Scorpion Red
The Moruga Scorpion has been tested at an amazing 2 million scoville heat units, but the average pepper you harvest will probably be more in the 1.2-1.4 million range, still incredibly hot and you seriously should wear gloves when handling the seeds we ship you.
The MS was named after the district of Moruga which lies on the central south coast of Trinidad.
The pepper has a slight fruity flavor and the plants grow about 3 feet tall.
PEP709 Chocolate Scorpion
This chocolate colored pepper has the same flavor and heat value in our opinion as the Red Scorpion, but maybe a little bit sweeter taste. The plants will grow up to 3 feet tall and do well in containers, and produce quite a few fruits about the size of a golf ball.
PEP710 Jays Ghost Scorpion
These are extremely hot peppers that were developed by a farmer named Jay in Eastern Pennsylvania. The peppers are a cross between Bhut Jolokia and Trinidad Scorpion.
It grows into many contorted shapes some having tails, some not. Will also look like an extremely twisted bumpy Ghost chile.
As far as we know, no scoville tests have been done yet to determine the heat range, but heat is comparable to the world record Trinidad Moruga Scorpion.
Fruits have a nice flavor for such a hot pepper.
We offer the red and peach colors.
One of our favorite peppers and most popular super hot peppers. Sturdy plants grow 24-30" tall and are loaded with habanero-type, 1" wide by 3" long
top-shaped fruits. Excellent citrusy flavor, but very, very hot. Peppers are in the 200-300 thousand SHU range. Very few seeds. Excellent choice for pots. 90 days from transplant.

Plant produces good yields of 2" long by 1 ¼" wide hot peppers. Peppers are extremely hot, said to top out in the 300,000 heat range.

PEP721 Sugar Rush Peach
This is a rare Peach colored Capsicum bacattum variety from Peru that is very sweet. The heat level approaches habanero, but does not quite achieve it. It might be the only Peach colored Aji type we have ever seen. It is similar to the Aji Amarillo but much sweeter, which is why it's called Sugar Rush. The Sugar Rush Chili plants will grow over 5 feet tall and will need staking. Like many Aji's they have a long season but produce many peppers into the fall.
PEP722 Butch T Scorpion
Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Chili Pepper is named after Butch Taylor, owner and creator of sauces from Louisiana. The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T was for a short time ranked as the hottest pepper in the world according to Guinness Worldwide Records in 2011.

The Pods ripen from green, to orange and finally to fiery red. Its a plump chili with a pendant shaped pod that tapers down the length and sometimes a tail like stinger like a scorpion. It is a rare and extremely hot chili pepper, which originates from Trinidad.
This is an extremely hot pepper with a somewhat fruity citrus fruit like flavor . The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T is really tasty. It's like eating a fruit salad that's on fire. Use sparingly, this chili has a intensity like no other.
PEP723 Chocolate Brainstrain
This is one hot pepper! Seems to be even hotter than the other brain strain varieties that we have tried. We've had a lot of requests for this pepper lately, it seems to be really coming on as a favorite super hot variety.

PEP726 Bubblegum 7 Pot
It is a cross between a red Moruga Scorpion and a Trinidad Yellow 7 Pot. It retains the look of the Moruga Scorpion but has a unique feature in that a light pink color sometimes bleeds up through the top of the pepper into the stem. This gives in the Bubblegum name. Some say it has a slight taste like bubblegum but most do not agree with that.
Very interesting pepper created by Jon Harper from the UK. This unique pepper has a very sweet floral smell followed by extremely hot 7 pod like taste. The pepper is among the hottest in the world.
What differentiates this pepper is not just the flavor and heat, but also the interesting exceptional calyx growing on the pod.
The thick oversized calyx turned red "bleeding" when pods are left on the plants for longer times. Even though this variety is over 6 years old and consistency is present among generations, there are still variations in pods share and growing characteristics.
PEP727 Red Lava
First year we are trying these, after a lot of recommendations. An extremely hot pepper with a bit of citrus flavor. Heat is close to the reaper in our opinon.
PEP728 Kraken Scorpion
Very hot! Kraken scorpion is a cross between a Bhut Jolokia Assam and a Chocolate scorpion pepper. F3 generation pods size and shape will vary from year to year, sometimes producing very large peppers, we think this is where the name comes from. Pods appear like a wicked twisted bumpy bhut and most pods have a 1/2 inch long tail like a scorpion pepper.
PEP730 Cumari do Para
Another rather unique pepper, Cumari do Para ( Capsicum Chinense ) is from Brazil. This chilli variety is a heavy producer of small yellow pods.
You will get an instantly flavor explosion and a fantastic burn that lasts quite a while, an excellent chili pepper.
The Cumari do Para looks stunning, when its covered with these small yellow pods and the plant is an easy grower and grows well in containers, and is ornamental.
