A new selection from 'Red Moruga Scorpion' that is absolutely enormous and very productive. This one comes from extremely hot pepper breeder Kevin Bane of Cooley Springs, South Carolina. He says, "I find it equal in heat to the smaller 'Moruga', but with much larger pods. Great for sauces or chili powders. Productive plants too."
