Trinidad 7 Pot a Rare and Delicious Pepper

Monday, February 15, 2010
In this post I will share information about the Trinidad 7 Pot or also called the Trinidad 7 Pod.. The Island of Trinidad has 2 superhot chiles. The Trinidad 7 Pot and the Trinidad Scorpion. These peppers are related but the Scorpion chile usually has a defined tail. But it is not uncommon to find a little tail at the end of a Trinidad 7 Pot pod sometimes. Trinidad is an island just northeast of Venezuela. The markets of Trinidad are full of peppers like the Congo peppers and Bird peppers. To find the Trinidad Scorpion or Trinidad 7 Pod you have to go inland to the countryside. Trinidad 7 Pots are called 7 Pot because it is said they have enough heat to flavor 7 pots of stew! 7 Pots can come in a variety of shapes and colors. The photos in this blog will feature many pod shapes but I will show the Yellow 7 Pot and Chocolate 7 Pot in other blog posts. Well here are my 2009 photos of the Trinidad 7 Pot.

Here is a picture of Trinidad 7 Pot in my hydroponic system

    Hi, my 7 pot are growing too large.
    It is now 1.5(narrow side)x2.2(wide side)x3.0(long) inches.
    And this is still green and seemed to be growing further.
    Is it abnormal?
