Trinidad 7 Pot/Pod

Trinidad 7 Pot/Pod


Scientific Classification

Capsicum Chinense

Heat rating in Scovilles:


In Caribbean regions it is also known as 7 pot as one pod is said to provide enough heat to spice up 7 pots of stew. Pods are habenaro like in their shape but have the characteristic ‘pimpling’ found on other fearsome varieties. This pepper is now seen in various colors – red, yellow, brown (see Chocolate 7 pot above), white and burgundy.

There are many varieties of the 7 Pot out there, including the Yellow 7-Pot, the 7-Pot Jonah, and the Chocolate, or 7-Pot Douglah. Related to the Trinidad Scorpion Pepper 7 Pots have a rough, pimpled skin, but is more plump, with a ribbed texture and a more fruity flavor.

TASTE: The heat of the 7-Pot pepper is similar to the Bhut Jolokia but with a more fruity and nutty flavor, like other Caribbean peppers.
