The Red Moruglah was created by crossing the Red Trinidad Moruga Scorpion and the 7 Pot Douglah. The superhot peppers are large pods that start off green and ripen to a deep red. They are loaded with both flavor and heat. A relative of the Red Moruglah, the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper, once held the record for the hottest pepper in the world. It remains one of the hottest peppers in the world, only surpassed by the Carolina Reaper, the current Guinness World Records holder.
The Red Moruglah has a higher heat level compared to other superhot varieties, but it still has the delicious fruity, sweet flavor with hints of cinnamon. Although the Red Moruglah has not yet been tested on the Scoville Scale, it is likely similar to the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion which averages about 1,200,000 to 2,000,000 Scoville Heat Units. The heat level kicks in immediately and will linger for several minutes, so the Red Moruglah should be used sparingly.
