Paul Bosland, a chili pepper expert and director of the Chile Pepper Institute, said, "You take a bite. It doesn't seem so bad, and then it builds and it builds and it builds. So it is quite nasty." 800,000 to 1,000,000 on the Scoville Scale.

The plants usually reach between 24 and 36 inches tall, while the peppers are between 1 and 2 inches and have a wrinkled appearance.Trinidad scorpion peppers require plenty of sunlight and water for fruit production, and fully mature in 90 to 100 days.

Trinidad scorpions grow best in soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.5, but can be grown in soil with a pH 5.5 and 7.0. They need well-drained soil, and if planted in a container, require one at least 16 inches in diameter with drainage holes in the bottom.

Trinidad scorpion peppers require at least six hours of full sunlight per day and a minimum growing temperature of 60 degrees F.

Harvest the peppers once they ripen to a golden yellow or red color. Wear gloves when handling the peppers.
