Trinidad Scorpion Butch T
The Trinidad Scorpion Pepper hales from Trinidad, the largest land mass in the South American island nation Trinidad and Tobago. It was refined by Butch Taylor in the United States. Although a member of the ‘Capsicum chinense’ family, all Capsicum varieties originated in the Americas. The name ‘chinense’ was used in this classification erroneously by botanist Nikolaus Joseph Freiherr von Jacquin due to its use in Chinese cuisine. However, the European spice trade was responsible for discovering the capsicum variety in the Americas and spreading them to distant lands.
