Hot Chili Pepper Trinidad Scorpion Peach

Hot Chili Pepper Trinidad Scorpion Peach. A very attractive Trinidad Scorpion variety producing large pods (18 Gram) on tall plants reaching 1.2m.  The pods mature from green to a soft peach colour with an excellent fruity flavour and high heat level, just not the sharp intense type of the red version.  The peach pepper pods are not unlike other Scorpions in that they have a bonnet like look to them and are very twisted and gnarly looking. Some of the pods grow skinny tails but not as much as other Scorpion chili types.

Cultivation Advice Hot Chili Pepper Trinidad Scorpion Peach

******Handle seeds with extreme care as contact with sensitive areas of skin can cause a severe burning sensation******

  • This variety can be difficult to germinate and therefore not for the novice.
  • Germination requires constant soil temperatures of between 28-30C. In the UK it is best to supply bottom heat with the aid of a propagation mat or propagator. The seed is unlikely to germinate without additional help in an average UK central heated house.
  • Soil based compost is best and should be fine and free-draining.
  • Germination in 14-28 days, patience is required.
  • Sow from Feb onwards in the UK indoors with heat provided and lightly cover with vermiculite if possible to 1/4in depth.
  • The seed does not require light during germination; however, once the seeds have germinated you need to provide adequate light for the seedlings.
  • If intending to move to a cooler conservatory or greenhouses in early summer gradually acclimatise the plants both to the higher light levels and temperatures.
  • Please note this variety is not suited to outdoor cultivation in the UK at any stage and will not appreciate unheated glasshouses in early spring until the weather warms.
