Here is the Black Scorpion Pepper, Capsicum annuum, Scoville units: 2,000 ~ 8,000 SHU. The Black Scorpion Pepper we believe originates from the USA. This pepper variety is NOT the Black Scorpion Tongue! They produce peppers about 1 1/2 to 2 inches round with 3 to 5 lobes and and looks a bit like a tiny bell pepper! Fruits turn pitch black in full sun then ripen to an orange red color. These plants can be very productive and love warm temperatures only getting to 30 inches tall and compact bushy type. One plant can produce dozens or more peppers. Fruits take a long time to ripen and great for pickling! Open pollinated, 85 days.
