is this a Trinidad Scorpian?

andyandy(6bMI)September 6, 2012

Yesterday I asked if anyone could identify a Naga Viper. After looking at some picutes online and thinking back I think it was a "Trinidad Scorpian". None are ripe (I have loads of peppers but none ripe yet). Can anyone tell from this picture if this is a Trinidad and if not what it may be?

They look like either Habanero's or Trinidad 7Pot. Here is a pic of the scorpion.

If you would like seeds from these, email me and I will send you some.

Thank you, I think it may be trinidad 7pot you mentioned. unless the seeds I ordred were miss-marked. I did order 1 pack of yellow habanero and I know I have 1 of those plants. I've grown habaneros before and recognize them. I do have 4 ghost pepper plants and 1 that plant looks like the ghosts but the fruit is a differnt shape. i'm not sure what that is. I'll take some more pics tonight. Thank you, I will proablably take you up on your seed offer. i just moved and hagve a huge basement. I think I may put a green house down there this fall.

Looks very habbish to me.

Yeah, while its true not all scorpions develop the stinger, you should at least be seeing pods where they tried to make one. Fact that you've got a half dozen on that plant and none of them appear to even be trying to make the signature scorpion tail shape is a fairly good indication to me that its not a scorpion.

It might still be one, but the odds are against it at this point.

Ok, I see now I know why they call it a scorpian. if the damn peppers would ripen I'd know for sure. I have 4 ghosts pepper plants, 1 yellow hab, and two that I'm not sure of. All loaded with peppers but nothing ripe. We are cooling off so starting tonight maybe a number of consecutive nights in the 50s will trigger them.

Thanx John. it's the smalles plant I have. I keep meaning to re-pot in something bigger. it may be done as far as fruit goes though. I don't see a lot of new flowers on it.
