Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pics

This is my first year growing Moruga Scorpions. Got the seeds from a reliable source. I wonder if these look like what you are growing, as I have not seen them before.

On one plant there were two main branches. One branch mostly had peppers with this dimple or button on the blossom end. The other main branch did not have any peppers with the button. you can see the difference on the left side vs. the right side of pic #2.

Anyone else familiar with this variety?

My moruga peppers look a bit different and are more uniform than the pics above. Are you sure the seed are pure?


RE: Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pics

I have 2 plants and I have pods that look like all of yours. They've been very prolific this year. Got the seed from Ottawa Pepper.

John, they look like any Moruga I've seen pictured on the web and have grown myself.

Here's a shot of some of my pods from last year.

There is some pod variation, as illustrated in your #2 picture, but I find that a common occurrence on many plant varieties. If the plant is prolific and the majority of the pods exhibit that indented puckered look on the bottom, then I'd say you have true Moruga peppers.

Those are some mean looking peppers! They look like they would burn a hole in your stomach!


RE: Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pics

Actually, they look kinda like your stomach, pre-hole.

I want some of these guys. We'll see that the seed exchange brings.

RE: Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pics

Thanks for the feedback. I was planning on sending in 5 packets to the Calgary Cowgirl. So I will send in some bonus packets too. Just be sure they are on your wish list so she will know who to give them to. Rick
