Butch T Trinidad Scorpian Chilli Capsicum Chinense Seeds
Packet of 15+ seeds from this stooopid hot chilli!
I personally grow this one mostly as a novelty.
If I make a big batch of stew, curry or soup and I’m feeling all tough I might add just 1 chilli to ~6litres of liquid, but even then its verging on too hot for me.
While this fella is no longer the number one hottest in the world it was from 2011 to 2013 with an amazing 1,463,700 Scoville heat units..
That is 300x hotter than Tabasco sauce and just 1 of these chilli peppers has the same level of heat as a shot glass full of police grade pepper spray.
Like I said, stooopid hot!
They look pretty, make a decent bug spray, and they certainly pack a punch.
Wearing gloves in the dry times I sometimes cut them and rub on stems of plants getting chewed by the critters.
Stops hares and rabbits ring barking your trees in the drought.
If hot and spicy is your thing they are a great option, but yeah, way too hot for me.
Folks have been hospitalised after eating these guys on a dare, so please don’t give the fruit to your unwitting doofus mates to chew on, and definitely keep away from your kids…
Grown by me and the Mrs organically, no chems, no nasties, no problems!!!
