An extremely hot variety matching that of Naga Morich or Bhut Jolokia which should be used with care. The 2-3 inch fruits are produced on larger than average vigorous plants maturing from green, through orange to red with a fruity flavour. The fruits are named from the pointed pendant at the peppers base resembling a Scorpion tail. The skin can be slightly wrinkled. The plants do need a long season and germination temperatures must be high at 28-30c in order to successfully cultivate these.
