Last year in 2013 I had some 7 Pot Burgundy growing which are smooth skin. One plant had mean bumpy pods. So I saved the seeds and grew out this year. The plants made bumpy pods again but now were just red and huge. I could not call it a 7 Pot Burgundy anymore.

I shared the plants with a few friends. One of them was an expert grower named Wes Lane from Texas. I told him I was not going to grow anymore. He said they were one of the tastiest 7 Pots he had ever had. He said I should grow every year! So I could not call them 7 Pot Burgundy anymore and I decided since Wes loved them I would name them after him. That's how the 7 Pot Wes got it's name!

They have extreme 7 Pot heat with nice fruity flavor and sometimes produce peppers bigger than a 7 Pot Jonah. The 7 Pot Wes Chile plants grow up to 4 feet tall. We do not know how stable this is. As of 2014 this is second year growing.

At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to try it yourself contact us for seeds, plants (March-August) and fresh chiles (September).

We also grow the Trinidad 7 Pot, Trinidad Scorpion, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant varieties!
