The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion was created by Wahid Ogeer of Trinidad, 70 year-old (2018), self-taught farmer for many decades and the President of the Practical Agricultural Training Institute of Trinidad and Tobago, and the President of the Confederation of Farmers Association of Trinidad and Tobago (CFAtt). He op­er­ates a 25-acre farm at Chick­land Ca­paro Road in Freeport.

 

In February of 2012, New Mexico State University's Chile Pepper Institute identified the Trinidad Moruga scorpion as the hottest chili in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs) and individual plants with a heat of more than 2 million SHUs. The current world record holder is the Carolina reaper with 1.64 million SHU.
