Black Scorpion Tongue
The Black Scorpion Tongue Pepper is a very unique and ultra rare Capsicum Annuum pepper. Under the right conditions displays striping running along the flesh. Strong sun is needed for these unique patterns to emerge.
Even from a young age, the leaves are dark purple as opposed to the standard green color. Even the flower pedals are purple. Young pepper fruit start from dark purple and ripen to a dark red color. During the ripening stage is when striping emerges.
This is one of the lower heat peppers that we offer at around 50,000-100,000 SHU.
It grows into an ornamental sized bush about 2-3’ tall with bountiful harvests. The pods are small, around 1.5” long and 3/4” wide. Flavor is excellent as well. It is crunchy and slightly sweet and tastes slightly like an apple. Unfortunately each pod is jam packed with seeds, so expect it to take some time to remove them.
