This delicious hot pepper tastes as good as it sounds. Although somewhat milder than its red cousin, The Trinidad Scorpion, the Trinidad Scorpion Chocolate Cappuccino still packs a punch coming in at over 1 million Scoville Heat Units. A beautiful novelty pepper that grows well and is very versatile, and will ripen from green to a striking chocolate color. It has a mellower, less acidic flavor with smoky undertones and a hint of earthy sweetness. This pepper is great to use for BBQ sauces, hot sauces, pepper powder, marinades, and more! Fun Fact: Its cousin, the Trinidad Scorpion used to be the hottest chili in the world in 2012! Non-Isolated.
