Moruga Scorpion (Capsicum chinense) is from the Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. It was formally announced on February 6, 2012 at the Chile Pepper Institute Leadership dinner to have tested at a high of 2,009,231 Scoville Units. A new world record! This test was done using seeds from my plants. The average heat of all testing combined for the Moruga Scorpion was 1,207,764 Scoville Units. So what you grow could get over 2,000,000 but most likely will be lower that that. The records always show the highest number but that is not the norm or average. This chile has been named after the district of Moruga which lies on the central south coast of Trinidad. Oddly enough this is the area where Christopher Columbus first landed.The surface of it’s outer skin is rough and pebbly like the Trinidad 7 Pot chile varieties and one would say it looks like the texture of the human brain. Average size of the pods is slightly bigger than a golf ball. The flavor is described as fruity & floral and heat builds long after eating. Plants average over a meter in height and are very productive.
