The Apocalypse Scorpion pepper (a.k.a. Apocalypse pepper) was developed by the Italian Pepper Lovers’ Association looking to breed the hottest pepper in the world. Parentage has not been disclosed.

 

This scorpion-type chili whose heat (1,400,000+ SHU) has been recorded at levels rivaling the Carolina Reaper (1,400,000 – 2,200,000 SHU.) but as this hot pepper is not yet completely stable, it has not yet been officially tested. 

 

While definately scorching, behind the extreme heat there is a sweet and fruity (nearly floral) flavor that serves well in extreme hot sauces, salsas, and more.

 

Gnarly, bumpy, 3-inch long pods with bright red skin. Plants grow up to 3 ft. tall.

 

Sold in a 2.62" wide x 3.5" deep pot.
