Details

The Big Mustard Mama is a superhot strain in which seeds are scarce. It is a variant of the Big Black Mama created by Troy Primeaux of Louisiana Lafayette University. This is a mustard, olive green, very bumpy, nuclear hot pepper – and it’s as mean as it looks. Flavor is earthy with a slight floral essence. Plants are very productive and make pods over 2 inches in diameter and almost 3 inches long. This is an unstable hybrid that could revert to the original color of the Big Black Mama. Even so, this is one cool variety to grow. Non-Isolated.
