Trinidad Scorpion Appearance

Do all the T. Scorpion peppers have that rough appearance? I have some (or so I thought) that have the definite scorpion shapes complete with curved stinger but are smooth skinned like a habanero. Are there some other possibilities?

I think only the Trinidad Moruga Scorpions have the rough or bumpy skin.

Botanicat, that may be an interesting hybrid..... if they taste good you may want to save some seeds.

northeast chileman-- that looks a lot like them though mine are less dark red and more shaped like a child's spinning top toy. I'll try to post a photo.

It does appear to be a cross, where did the seeds come from?

botanicat, I too would like to know where you got your seeds from. Your pods are the closest thing I've seen to my favorite Scorpion FG's. Squatter without the thin stinger but close!

Regardless, please save some and I'll trade you for 3 or 4 varieties of other Scorpions for them

Send me an email via my profile.

I couldn't swear to it but I think they are from the swap this past winter but could be from some saved seeds from last year although mine last year didn't look like that. The envelope from the swap is white and has a sticker on it with a pepper in a chef's hat. I will save seeds.

Mystery solved? I found my label for these and it said Billy Goat. I got the seeds from the last year's swap. They don't look exactly like the photos I see on line and they measure about 1.25" in diameter and about 1.5 long not counting stem with some a little larger. I think I'll make some jelly with them.
