Any ideas on what this could be? This is the most interesting pod, the rest don’t really have the pronounced bottom end. Got it off Etsy (I know, dumb move) about 8 months ago and just recently the plant has grown 3 feet and finally started to produce fruit.

Some extra info. It was supposed to be a yellow scorpion pepper. Do all scorpion peppers have the pronounced tail on each pepper or does it only occur on some of the fruit?

This pepper is, without a doubt, not an original strain Scorpion. Those have smooth skin and more pronounced tails. The Moruga Scorpion, however, looks a lot like what you see here a lot of the time, though this could also be a 7-Pot Brainstrain or another, similar variety.

Thank you. The other plant I bought turned out to be just a regular habanero (I can find those easily at our grocery store) so having something more on the unique side is definitely a win.

You home grown habs will likely be better (and hotter) than those at the grocery store, so all is not lost. :)

They are, I’m just happy to have something that I pretty much only see on here. I’ve been very curious to what these super hots taste like and really wanted to try making my own sauce with them.
