The White 7 Pot Bubblegum, a very rare relative of the Red 7 Pot Bubblegum, is one of the hottest peppers in the world. Created by crossing the Red 7 Pot Bubblegum and the White Ghost pepper, the White 7 Pot Bubblegum pepper is extremely unique because of the bleeding of white color that moves from the pepper itself through the stem. The exotic appearance of the color bleeding up the stem along with the extreme heat level has resulted in the White 7 Pot Bubblegum pepper surging in popularity. Similar to other superhot peppers, the White 7 Pot Bubblegum’s flavor is fruity and sweet, but its extreme heat comes on fast. Once the pod has matured to white, the stem tends to linger at a white color. The White 7 Pot Bubblegum pepper has an appearance similar to that of the 7 Pot pepper, about the size of a golf ball.
The White 7 Pot Bubblegum pepper’s heat is similar to that of the Ghost pepper as it ranges from 850,000 to 1,000,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Although the White 7 Pot Bubblegum is considered a superhot pepper, it still ranks behind the Carolina Reaper pepper, as well as its close relatives, the Trinidad Scorpion pepper and the Trinidad 7 Pot pepper.
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, Yellow 7 Pot, and 7 Pot Douglah. The 7 Pot pepper is related to the Trinidad Scorpion pepper, one of the hottest peppers in the world.
