Who’s growing the Scorpions?

CA1C6781-85D6-478D-82E0-501080705FF7 Thank you so much for all the wonderful feedback we’ve been getting about our limited edition  Special Reserve Hot Sauce. We are so delighted that you love the heat and the taste. 

Our sauce wouldn’t be so special, if it wasn’t for the tasty but deadly Trinidad Scorpion Peppers grown by our friend Yvonne from Yvonne’s Plants  www.yvonnes-plants.co.uk. We buy our peppers from Yvonne because she never uses pesticides and chemicals, she helps nature work its magic.

So we’d like to say a big thank you to Brave Heart and Chester, Yvonne’s friends horses who’ve provided all the special reserve manure that’s kept our plants well fed. 

And an even bigger thank you to all the little fat ladybirds who ate all the bugs who would have otherwise damaged the plants.

And finally a big thanks to Frank and Pippa, Yvonne’s dogs who have guarded the Trinidad Scorpion Plants from any marauding Bandidos and pepper thieves!

A few facts about Trinidad Scorpions:

  • Are so hot they were deemed the hottest pepper in the world at one time and although not quite the hottest pepper out there now, overtaken by the Carolina Reaper they are still a pepper to be very cautious of!
  • Scoville Scale 1,000,000 – 1,463,700 SHU
  • The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T pepper is a Capsicum chinense cultivar that is among the most piquant peppers in the world. It is indigenous to Trinidad and Tobago
