Bubblegum 7 Pot

(Capsicum chinense)

By Jim (Habanero) Duffy






Bubblegum 7 Pot (Capsicum chinense)

Also called 7 Pot Bubblegum. This is a 3rd generation cross developed by Jon Harper a grower in the U.K in 2011- 2012. It is a cross between a red Moruga Scorpion and a Trinidad Yellow 7 Pot. It retains the look of the Moruga Scorpion but has a unique feature in that a light pink color sometimes bleeds up through the top of the pepper into the stem. This gives in the Bubblegum name. Some say it has a slight taste like bubblegum but most do not agree with that.

Know that it is only a third generation pepper has very little stability so you may or may not get all the desired traits you see in others photos as I am sure everyone is posting their best pictures of this cool looking pepper. It has good 7 Pot heat and produces many pods. The 7 Pot Bubblegum chile plants can grow to a height over 3 feet tall.

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!
