Jay's Red Ghost Scorpion

(Capsicum chinense)

By Jim (Habanero) Duffy






Jay's Red Ghost Scorpion

(Capsicum chinense)

This is an extremely hot pepper that was developed by a farmer named Jay in Eastern Pennsylvania, United States. The chile plant has been growing for 4 years now. Growing it in 2013 will make it 5th generation. It is a cross between a Ghost Chile (Bhut Jolokia) and a Trinidad Scorpion. It ripens to a rich bright red color. It grows into many contorted shapes some having tails. Will also look like an extremely twisted bumpy Ghost chile. There is no scoville test done yet but those that have tasted it say it rivals the heat of the world record Trinidad Moruga Scorpion. It has a floral like flavor but not as acidic as the Butch T Scorpion. Use caution when handling.

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

We also grow the Bhut Jolokia, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant varieties!
