So I bought some Trinidad Maruga scorpion seeds off ebay. The attached pic shows what I'm getting. The Trinidad Butch T seeds from the same place look like Trinidad peppers. Any help identifying this pepper is appreciated
Red or Yellow Mushroom Peppers. Those are not Trinidads.
Not super spicy but grows well and nice taste.
Seed vendors on Ebay almost always screw you over. Its just a crap shoot.

Yup, bought Moruga Scorpion seeds on ebay turned out to be Scotch Bonnet.
Never buying seeds off ebay.
I bet most of us have done it Stoney. Seems to be a rite of passage for newbees.
I bought some that were supposed to be chocolate hab and turned out to be Bell peppers.
Sometimes bargains can be found on eBay.

Of course you should double check the supplier too!
Reviews for 'Whatcom Seed Company (Seedrack.com)'
Ordered Ghost Peppers and got a Red Habanero.
Bhut turned out to be Caribbean Reds,
I ordered bhut jolokia seeds, received the seeds, planted the seeds, and harvested...umm...NOT bhut jolokia peppers.
Most germinated, but many of the plants were cross-pollinated and nothing like advertised - carribean red peppers were small and yellow, chocolate peppers were orange, etc.
Thanks Ronny, they definitely resemble the mushroom pepper. Thanks for all the input guys! I'm learning lol. I'm grateful for this forum and looking forward to swapping or buying from y'all in the future
