Also a “must have” for pepper lovers. The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Red was developed from the Trinidad Scorpion and was the hottest chili pepper in the world from February 2012 to November 2013! The Carolina Reaper overthrew the Moruga. The average number of Scoville Units was 1.2 million with outliers reaching 2,009.231 million in the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion. The seeds germinate best around 30 degrees Celsius. And be careful not to touch the seeds with bare hands! Gloves are not an unnecessary luxury!
