A rare mutant pepper that was thought to be a Peach 7 Pot pepper, the Long Peach 7 Pot pepper is an elongated version of its parent, the Peach 7 Pot pepper. Long 7 Pot peppers are long and have smooth skin, unlike the bumpy skin of the Peach 7 Pot pepper. The original Peach 7 Pot pepper was created by crossing the Red 7 Pot pepper and Jay's Peach Ghost Scorpion. The pods have a very high heat level and a fruity flavor like other 7 Pot varieties. The peppers mature to peach and are about the same size as Shishito peppers. The Long Peach 7 Pot pepper tastes similar to the Red 7 Pot pepper, including the fruity flavor and superhot heat level. Long Peach 7 Pot peppers fall under the super hot category because of their very spicy heat level. The Long Peach 7 Pot pepper averages about 1,000,000 to 1,200,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), just behind the Carolina Reaper and the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion on the Scoville Heat Scale.
The 7 Pot pepper was originally grown in Trinidad, and there are several different colored strains, including the Red 7 Pot, White 7 Pot, 7 Pot Brain Strain, Chocolate 7 Pot, 7 Pot Primo, and 7 Pot Douglah. The 7 Pot pepper is related to the Trinidad Scorpion pepper, one of the hottest peppers in the world.
