Chinense. Over 1 Million Scoville Heat Units. This is one of my favorite chili peppers. I love all 7-Pot peppers for their heat and fruitiness. In fact, it is one of the hottest chili peppers in the world. The 7-Pot Barrackapore comes from Trinidad and is a rare chili pepper. The pots are shaped similar to a habanero or a ghost pepper. The skin is typically pimpled and form a tail, per the photos. The pods start out green and ripen to a vibrant shade of red.
An old story goes that the 7-Pot is so named because a single pod can heat 7 pots of chili or stew, so keep that in mind when consuming this crazy hot pepper. Get recipes with the 7-Pot Barrackapore and 7-Pot chili pepper.
