Borg 9 Red-(Capsicum chinense)- Jon Harper an expert grower from the U.K. is the creator behind this chile. To understand you must see the history. Jon first made the 7 Pot Bubblegum which is known for the color of the pepper bleeding up the calyx and up the stem. This is a Moruga/Yellow 7 Pot cross. Later he crossed the 7 Pot Bubblegum into the Naglah (Bhut Jolokia X 7 Pot Douglah). This then became know as the Borg 9. Why he named it Borg 9 I don’t know. Some say it was nick named after actor Ernest Borgnine. Some say it is named after the infamous Borg aliens from Star Trek series. If I ever talk to Jon I will correct this. Now there is some sweetness to the Borg 9. But it has a nasty burn. So your either going to love the flavor or hate it. Some say it’s like an extreme Ghost flavor which is kind of earthy or smoky. The Borg 9 Red chile plants grow up to 4 feet tall. No official testing has been done but some believe it may be one of the worlds hottest chiles.
