Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Scoville Rating

The heat level of scorpion pepper powder is somewhat mild at first but then it builds until it is unbearable and crosses the 1.2 million Scoville Heat Unit threshold. Some individual fruits are known to top out at a whopping 2 million SHU on the Scoville Scale causing intense pain and a significant endorphin rush.

Frequently Asked Questions About Trinidad Scorpion Peppers

Can a Trinidad Scorpion pepper kill you?
Not likely. If you have any underlying medical conditions, talk to your doctor before consuming them. The pain you feel is actually limited to mammals. Birds consume peppers without even noticing the heat that you feel because they lack the same pain receptors.

Pepper X is hotter than the Trinidad Scorpion pepper. It has an average heat level of 2.69 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU), making it three times spicier than the Trinidad Scorpion, which averages 1.2 million SHU. Pepper X was developed by Ed Currie, the same creator as the Carolina Reaper.
