Also known as: Bubblegum 7 pod. The heat level in Scoville heat units for the Trinidad 7 Pod Bubblegum Chilli is around the 850,000 Scoville Heat Units.
This variety of Chilli is a cross between a Trinidad Scorpion Moruga and a Trinidad 7 Pod Yellow. This cross is originally from the UK.
It looks a lot like the Trinidad Scorpion moruga but the difference and very unique thing with this variety of chillies is that the cap/crown of the chilli pod and also the stalk will turn light reddish / pinkish colour!! It looks really awesome and different to any other chilli plant!!
Some say the name bubblegum comes from the flavour like bubble gum some say because it is mixed colour of stem and crown that looks like bubblegum…
We think it looks awesome and it tastes really hot and that this is a great different chilli plant in your garden to show to your friends and talk about all the different kind of chillies available!!
When fully grown the Trinidad 7 Pod Bubblegum Chilli can grow up to 90 – 110 cm high and they get bushy and the pods are very heavy and clock in at around the 15 to 20 grams each. You should be able to get 2 KG per plant of fresh fruit during the chilli season, which lasts approximate 4 to 6 months.
