Originally from Trinidad Island, South America where they are used in the various local dishes that need extreme heat of chilli. Handle with care, they are only just under the Trinidad Scorpion Butch Taylor our Guinness World Record holder…. wear gloves while handling these chilli pods. You can use this chilli fresh offcourse but also dried or grinded.
This chilli goes great sparingly in any dish that needs the heat! The chilli pods go from green to yellow over time. The chilli pod looks quite similar to the Scorpion Tail hence the name of the chilli. When fully grown the Trinidad Scorpion Cardi Chilli can grow up to 90 – 120 cm high and you should be able to get a lot of fresh fruit during the chilli season which lasts approximate 4 to 6 months.
The name of this variety comes from the institute that developed it.
CARDI: Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute
