Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Pepper Seeds
As of June 4 2011, the official Guinness World’s Record
for hottest pepper
has been updated and recognizes the Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T”
as the hottest pepper in the world!
The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Pepper
is a Capsicum chinense pepper. This hot pepper
is derived from the Trinidad Scorpion Pepper
, which is indigenous to Trinidad and Tobago. The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Pepper
is named after Butch Taylor
, the owner of a Zydeco hot sauce company who is responsible for propagating the pepper's seeds.
We are proud to offer seeds from the original strain of Australian grown Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Pepper
seeds supplied by The Hippy Seed Company. These are the seeds used to grow the award winning 1,463,700 SHU ButchT Trinidad Scorpions
The "scorpion" peppers are referred to as such because the pointed end of the pepper is said to resemble a scorpion's stinger.
Use great caution
when growing and handling these peppers. Wear gloves when handling and be very conservative in using them as a spice- it is said that one seed from the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T
can induce intense physical pain for up to 30 minutes.
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.
Please see our article on Pepper Growing Tips for more information on planting and growing Peppers from seed BEFORE starting these seeds to increase your chance of germination!
