One of the hottest peppers in the world, the White 7 Pot pepper's name comes from the idea that one pepper pod can provide spice for 7 pots of stew. This is the white variety, an extremely rare strain of the 7 Pot family. The pods, which slowly ripen from light green to white, have a very high heat level and the taste has a fruity flavor like other 7 Pot varieties. The White 7 Pot is similar in size to the Red 7 Pot, although it’s common for White 7 Pot pods to grow slightly larger. The plant is very prolific and grows to be about three to four feet tall. 7 Pot peppers fall under the super hot category because of their very spicy heat level. The White 7 Pot pepper has slightly less heat than the Carolina Reaper and the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion as it averages between 1,150,000 to 1,800,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).
The 7 Pot pepper was originally grown in Trinidad, and there are several different colored strains, including the Yellow 7 Pot, Red 7 Pot, 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.
