Bombay Morich Maroon Pepper
Here is the Bombay Morich Maroon Pepper, Capsicum chinense, Scoville units: 1,000,000 to 1,598,227 SHU. This is a Maroon version of Bombay Morich pepper. One plant out of dozens of plants came up maroon in color. The naga peppers originate from Mumbai (formerly called Bombay) which is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is very similar to the Naga Morich Pepper but is a little different. Pods start out green then ripen to red in color when fully ripe with skins that are lumpy and bumpy like a Bhut Jolokia but fatter then a Bhut. Plants can get to 4 feet tall and produce dozens of fruits per plant. Pods have an amazing rich flavor with a very high striking burn that don't go away very fast! This pepper is rated very high on the scoville scale and is just as hot if not hotter then the regular Naga Morich pepper. Open pollinated 80 days.
