Primo 7 Pot Pepper
‘Pure evil disguised as a chilli pepper’
Primo 7 Pot Pepper is another insanely hot chilli created by Troy Primeaux (Nickname – Primo – an American chilli grower). This chilli is a cross between the Naga Morich and the Trinidad 7 Pot Pepper. While Troy was studying at the University of Louisiana back in 2005, he carefully cross bred these two super hot varieties to produce the Primo 7 Pot. As you may notice, it is very similar to the Carolina Reaper. What’s a fact is, Troy’s cross was available long time before the Reaper was introduced as the World’s Hottest Chilli.
This variety was destined to be pure evil disguised as a chilli pepper. It is excruciatingly hot. Are you are a true chilli head in love with insane heat?! Then this is one for you. A real beast of pod.
This plant grows extremely well in a pot and can grow up to a meter in height. The plant is a great producer of these AMAZING and evil looking peppers. The pods start of a light green and end up a fiery red with a wrinkly gnarly surface, when they are fully mature.
The Primo 7 Pot Pepper is an excellent choice for making your own extreme hot sauce. Another great option would be to powder them up and get a volcanic chilli powder.
If you are a lover of extreme chilli, you should give these a shot. This is one FANTASTIC looking plant.
