7 Pot Bubblegum Yellow

(Capsicum chinense)



Also called BBG7 Yellow for short or Bubblegum 7 Pot Yellow. This is the Yellow variant of cross developed by Jon Harper a grower in the U.K in 2011- 2012. 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. In this case you will see Yellow color bleeding up the calyx and stem. Some say it has a slight taste like bubblegum but most do not agree with that. The 7 Pot Bubblegum Yellow has lower heat than the red and has citrus fruity tones like other yellow superhots. The 7 Pot Bubblegum Yellow chile plants grow between 3 to 4 feet tall.

Naga Bubblegum Cross Red

(Capsicum chinense)



Naga Bubblegum Cross Red-(Capsicum chinense)-It is also called NagaBBG7 Red or Redgum.We believe this was created between 2012 and 2013. The creator of this pepper is our friend and expert chile grower Terry Smith from the U.K.. This is different from the Italian strain as the Naga used to make this variety is the famous Cornish Naga. It produces some wicked shaped elongated peppers that also have the classic Bubblegum color bleed up the calyx and stem. The flavor is kind of fruity with a good Naga or Ghost heat level. Terry made a beautiful chile here and it won't disappoint you with heat or flavor. The Naga Bubblegum Red chile plants grow over 4 feet tall.
