Skunk Red-(Capsicum chinense)-The Skunk Red pepper is mean hot pepper variety developed by master Italian grower Rocco Maltesi. It is a cross between the MA Wartryx (created by Matthew Arthur) and the 7 Pot CARDI strain. The 7 Pot CARDI strain being the original official 7 Pot pepper from Trinidad. The result of this cross are mean extremely bumpy huge superhot peppers that sometimes have a scorpion like tail. I have gotten some so huge that they almost fill up the palm of my hand! The Skunk Red chile plants seem to produce more peppers than it’s Chocolate or Brown colored relative. However the Skunk Chocolate does make larger peppers with more tail features. The flavor is somewhat fruity with upfront heat the Skunk Red pepper. The Skunk Red Chile plants grow up to 5 feet tall.
