Black Scorpion Tongue Chilli
It is a bit of a mystery where The Black Scorpion Tongue Chilli originates from. We got these from our mate Chris in the US and we love it.
The plants grows well in a pot to over a metre high and is easy to grow and maintain. They might need a plant stake to support them once it pods up as the branches get heavy with stunning looking pods.
The pods are absolutely beautiful and their colour change is a joy for the eyes. They go through numerous colours, deep purple, yellow, orange, red and get the coolest patterns on the pods. Their final colour is red and then they are ready to be picked.
This chilli has a really nice flavour and would be really good in a salsa with all the different colours.
Pod size: 4 cm long and 1.5-2 cm wide
Flavour wise: Crunchy, sweet and a bit salty, plus sort of apple like.
Heat level: Upper mid heat.
