7 Pot Primo

7 Pot Primo


Scientific Classification

Capsicum Chinense

Heat rating in Scovilles:

1473480 – 1473480

Created by Troy Primeaux, (nickname Primo), a horticulturist from Louisiana. He began crossing the Naga Morich and Trinidad 7 Pot seeds around 2005 and has since grown them out for 8 generations. He currently grows privately at UL Lafayette Ira Nelson Horticulture Center. He has seen little variation at this point. It is safe to say that this pepper is a stable variety because it takes 6 to 7 generations to be stable and is currently in its 8th generation (F8).

The 7 Pot Primo can get very lumpy and distorted and even grow a skinny little tail.

TASTE: Like other 7 Pots it has a fruity/floral flavor and is extremely hot. Orange/yellow varieties of this pepper have also been seen.
