Kevin Bane produced these seeds for this new version of the 'Moruga Scorpion' from Florida hot pepper breeder Tony Sherwood (A.K.A. Pepper T), developed from the original 'Moruga Scorpion Red' from Trinidad. Kevin says, "I do not know what else he used to breed it up, but it has a wonderful flavor that is rich like the original Moruga, yet fruity and light. The heat is well over 1 million Scoville heat units, making it a 10/10 for heat. Intense flavor and intense heat."
