One of the hottest of the 7 Pot strain peppers, the Yellow 7 Pot Brain Strain looks similar to the Yellow Moruga Scorpion pepper, but has a few slight differences. The peppers are round and have bumpy yellow skin. This pepper is very spicy and has a slight fruity flavor. 
At one point, some growers thought the 7 Pot Brain Strain could be the world’s hottest pepper. Yellow 7 Pot Brain Strain pepper plants are high yielding plants that grow to be about three to four feet tall.

Although this rare and exotic pepper was originally discovered by David Cappiello, 7 Pot peppers originated in Trinidad. The 7 Pot pepper is related to the Trinidad Scorpion pepper, one of the hottest peppers in the world.

A unique pepper with pods 2-1/2” long and 2-1/2” wide with crinkled yellow skin. It has a pineapple-like fruity taste and a whole lot of heat.  Like a WHOLE LOT.   

Peppers require full sun and thrive in well-draining, fertile soil.  Mulching at the base of your plants will ensure good soil moisture and retain warmth below the surface all season.  Can be grown in a container but regardless of where you grow it, we highly recommend staking - this plant can really crawl without support.  
Would look gorgeous next to some purple basil!!! Scoville Heat Units rating of 1,600,000 SHU.

Warning: Handling this pepper requires extreme caution. Wear hand, eye and breathing protection. These peppers are great to add to salsas or hot sauces.
