The legendary 7-Pot series comes from Trinidad and there are many different versions, including the 7 Pot Primo Red
, 7 Pot White and the 7 Pot Douglah Brown. It is related to the Scorpion pepper Red
and has a rough skin, with a ribbed texture and a more fruity taste.
The relatively new 7-Pot Chocolate is a twist on the original Trinidad 7 Pot superhots. Ripe peppers are brown in color, with the white internal membrane covering much of the inside of the pepper.
There is still some debate as to whether the brown or chocolate 7 Pot is the same variety as the 7 Pot Douglah. Some argue that the 7 Pot Brown tastes much better than the Douglah.
Warning: Using this pepper requires extreme caution. Wear hand, eye and breathing protection.
