One of the hottest of the Yellow 7 Pot strain peppers, the Yellow 7 Pot Brain Strain looks similar to the Yellow Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper, but has a few slight differences. The peppers are round and have bumpy yellow skin. The 7 Pot Brain Strain pepper is very spicy and has a slight fruity flavor like its close relative the Red 7 Pot Brain Strain. Fresh ripe pods of the Brain Strain have high concentrations of capsicum oil on the inside walls, which contributes to its super hot heat level. At one point, some growers thought the 7 Pot Brain Strain could be the world’s hottest pepper. Yellow 7 Pot Brain Strain pepper plants are high yielding plants that grow to be about three to four feet tall.
Although this rare and exotic pepper was originally discovered by David Cappiello, 7 Pot peppers originated in Trinidad. 7 Pot peppers fall under the super hot category because of their very spicy heat level. There are several different colored strains of 7 Pot peppers, including the Red 7 Pot, Yellow 7 Pot, White 7 Pot, Chocolate 7 Pot, 7 Pot Douglah, and 7 Pot Primo. The 7 Pot pepper is related to the Trinidad Scorpion pepper, one of the hottest peppers in the world.
