Devil's Tongue Pepper Seeds

The Devilís Tongue Pepper, currently considered the 7th hottest pepper in the world, was ďdiscoveredĒ growing amongst other habaneros in Pennsylvania. Its exact origins are unknown but it is clearly in the habanero family based on its taste and heat level.

Devilís Tongue peppers have been measured as high as 325,000 Scoville heat units. Their bright yellow wrinkly pods make Devilís Tongue peppers easy to spot when ripe.

Storage of Pepper Seeds:
Store seeds away from children (the seeds themselves can be hot when in contact with skin or consumed!). Keep pepper seeds sealed in their packaging and in a cool, dry, dark place, or in a fridge. Never store them in a freezer as the sudden temperature drop is likely to kill them. Do not leave pepper seeds in direct sunlight as the heat generated may also kill them or decrease their germination rate.

Also available:
Bhut (Naga) Jolokia Seeds
Hot Pepper Seeds
