A rare 7 Pot pepper variation, the 7 Pot Chaguanas pepper is slightly hotter than the original 7 Pot and has a fruitier flavor. Like most 7 Pot varieties, the 7 Pot Chaguanas originated from the Islands of Trinidad and Tobago, specifically the village of Chaguanas. The pods are irregular in shape and multiple pod variations on one plant is typical. The heat level is similar to that of the Ghost pepper and Naga Morich as 7 Pot Chaguanas peppers average about 800,000 to 1,000,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Peppers start green and ripen to red, grow to be about two to three inches in length, and have thin skin.
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.
