Piranha Pepper-(Capsicum chinense)-The Piranha pepper also known as JD Piranha is an off variant of the Marions Scotch Bonnet. You take a bite out of this scorching pepper, and it takes a Piranha bite out of you!! It has a slight resemblance to a Moruga Scorpion but also can get elongated and even get a very short pointy tail at the lower tip. The heat is at superhot levels from a burn feel but we don’t think it is as high in SHU as other red superhot variants. But we may be wrong? The flavor is very fruity, and the production is excellent. The production of the Piranha pepper is similar to Scotch Bonnets. The Piranha chile plants grow over 5 feet tall so they will need some staking or support. This is not a man-made cross. This is a red variant of a yellow type that is most likely a result of a recessive gene as red is a recessive gene in yellow. The Piranha Chile plants grow over 4 feet tall and will need support. Very productive!!
