The 4th-hottest pepper in the world. Back in 2005 a man named Troy Primeaux (Nickname, Primo), a Horticulturist and member of the Southern Rock band called Santeria from Louisiana, grew out some of the first seeds of the Naga Morich in the United States. These seeds were obtained from his friend Mark in the U.K. who got the seeds from a market in Bangladesh. So Primo grew them out true. Shortly afterwards he obtained some Trinidad 7 Pot seeds from a professor friend of his who got the seeds from an elderly woman in Trinidad. Primo then began crossing the two varieties and has since grown them out for 7 generations. He still grows out the chile plants isolated in greenhouses which he manages for LNPI (Louisiana Native Plant Initiative). He has seen little variation at this point.
The 7 Pot Primo can get very lumpy and distorted and even grow a skinny little tail. Some recent pepper cultivators have even tried to replicate this look because the tail is just terrifying (ie: Carolina Reaper). Like other 7 Pots, it has a fruity/floral flavor and is extremely hot. It is safe to say that this pepper is a stable variety because it takes 6 to 7 generations to be stable and as of 2012 it was in its seventh generation. Add to the fact that the man who crossed these two varieties is a genuine horticulturist working on projects for the State of Louisiana. There are quite a few varieties of red 7 Pot strains, but this one is definitely worth growing in your garden. When you just look at this pepper you know it’s going to be INSANELY hot! 1,469,000 SHU.
