Details

One of the world’s hottest peppers! Ugly but beautiful warted fruit sure packs a punch! This punishing pepper was developed by the Italian Pepper Lovers’ Association. Thanks to over 5 grueling years of breeding for intense heat, this superhot scorpion type pepper stands a chance to be a record breaker! The Apocalypse Scorpion has nice fruity tones and rivals the heat of any other so-called superhot pepper. Good to use with a beef dish, meat sauce, or in salsa. Non-Isolated.
