Here it is! We’re thrilled to offer you the previously “Hottest Pepper on the Planet” record holder, the Butch T Trinidad Scorpion pepper seeds. It became world famous when it broke all records in the Guinness Book of World Records back in 2011. The Scorpion Butch pepper is a very exclusive pepper and is very hard to find, but we love growing rare peppers! The chili is a Trinidad Scorpion strain, which we all have come to know as one of the hottest peppers in the world.

WOW! That’s a lot of Butch T’s that we’ve sold. The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T pepper is HOT and will burn your mouth off, but once you get past the heat, you’ll find it tasty with their sweet, fruity flavors that are similar to the Trinidad Moruga or Carolina Reaper. Although it’s a finicky germinator, with some tender loving care, it will grow very well. The Butch T Trinidad Scorpion pepper plant will grow to 3 feet tall with bountiful crops.
