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 Douglah is one of the rarest of the 7-Pods. This one has a bumpy red skin and an unusual amount of oil. It is from the Chaguanas area of Trinidad. In the Caribbean it is known as 7 pot, as one pod would provide enough heat to make 7 stews hot.
To increase the chances of good germination, a constant compost temperature of 28° - 30° is recommended.
Warning: Using this pepper requires extreme caution. Wear hand, eye and breathing protection.
