HOT HOT HOT! Warning! A Trinidad scorpion type which put out peppers hotter than Naga types.

Moruga Red has been recorded as over 2 million Scoville heat units but average around 1.2 million. 2 million scoville heat units is the same pungency as police pepper spray – so if you like peppers with punch this is the one for you.

A tall 1m (3 ½ ft) spreading plant which is best grown in a greenhouse in the UK to allow enough time for the peppers to ripen and its heat units to develop although maximum heat will only be achieved if England experiences a long hot summer again.

Moruga Red requires some support to hold its branches upright, and must be sown no later than February in a heated propagator at around 30°C. The flavour is delicate, sweet with floral fragrance but the actual tasting process requires considerable care!

Useful tip:

From late winter get hold of 9cm pots and fill them with seed and cutting compost, suitable for seeds that are just germinating. The compost has just the right level of nutrients to see your seedlings off to a sure start.

Position three seeds 0.5cm (1/4in) deep around the edge of a 9cm pot. Water the compost then label and date your peppers for future reference.

Put the pots somewhere that gets 18°C (64°F) of warmth (a thermometer is a handy investment for seed sowing) and keep the soil damp but not waterlogged until your seedlings reach a size when they will happily fill a bigger pot. From now on every seedling will require a pot of its own to grow successfully. Transplant again into bigger pots by degrees as your tomato plants develop.
