This 7 Pot variety comes from the region of Barrackpore on the Caribbean Island of Trinidad. The Trinidad 7 Pot Barrackpore has an elongated pod structure sometimes similar to the Bhut Jolokia, but can have different appearances, shapes and sizes. 7 Pot Barrackpore has somewhat larger and more wrinkled pods compared to the regular 7 Pot. Some think this chile is the missing link between the 7 Pot and the Bhut Jolokia (Ghost pepper). It has a nice fruity flavor along with considerable heat and is a heavy producer. This pepper comes in different colors like white, yellow, brown and red.

This variety is closely linked to the 7 Pot/Pod and Trinidad Scorpion varieties. It may or may not be a different variety.
