Capsicum chinense 'Trinidad Scorpion Butch T' - chilli

DESCRIPTION: Bushy variety producing small fat lumpy fruits tapering to a point, green ripening to red, each with extremely high heat and Scoville rating. Handle with caution. Scorpion chilies originate in Trinidad; this well-travelled variety made its way to Butch Taylor's hot sauce company in the USA, where it was picked up by Australian chili aficionados and brought back here.
PLANTING: Spring-Summer and Winter in warmer locations at 22-25C. Sow seeds directly into their final position & thin at approx 5cm in height. A full sun location is ideal, suited to container planting.
USE IN: Add to sauces, curries and pickles. May be frozen or dried for later use. Advisable not to eat raw.
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and only occasionally as plants mature to avoid wet feet. Mulch plants to retain moisture in the soil. Harvest chillies by cutting the stem approx 2cm above the pepper. Apply liquid fertiliser regularly for best results. Protect plants from frost.
