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.
This white variety has a wrinkled, bumpy surface and changes from light green to white when ripe. The peppers are large and can grow to 4 to 5 cm. 7 Pot White has a fruity flavor that accompanies the blistering heat immediately. The walls of the pod are thin, making it ideal for drying.
Once dried, the pod can be ground into a powder and used to flavor a variety of meats and snacks. 7 Pot White can also be used to make salsas and hot sauces.
Warning: Using this pepper requires extreme caution. Wear hand, eye and breathing protection.
