Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T” Pepper


Scientific Classification

Capsicum Chinense

Heat rating in Scovilles:

1463700 – 1463700

Propagated by Butch Taylor of Zydeco Hot Sauce and grown by the Chilli Factory, the Trinidad Scorpion ‘Butch T’ variety pepper was formerly ranked as the hottest pepper in the world, but lost that title to the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion as of February 2012.

The “scorpion” peppers are referred to as such because the pointed end of the pepper is said to resemble a scorpion’s stinger.
