    Hey Al flavor was probably not as good as you got peppers off my plants after they were already dying at end of season. But you have a bunch of frozen ones that you can make salsa out of. Good Job you are now officially respected by me. I owe you a 5 minute hug to show my gratitude!

    Nice job Buddah. I’d like to get some of those to add to my dried pepper shake!

    The singing at the end was surely more torturous than the pepper.

    I am not sure this pepper was a real moruga scorpion, listen he must be superman. I eat a lot of hot peppers but I will not dare eat a moruga scorpion the way he did, first of all he would not be able to speak after the first bite, second look at the pepper see how smooth the surface is, a true scorpion has a very rough surface, check it out.

    Hi Moruga Max. Do you see the plant picture above?? The pod came from that plant. I grew over 30 of them. It was a real Moruga. Now every now and then I get a pod more smoother then a regular Moruga. This pod was from a plant in December. So plant was at it’s end. When pods ripen in cold weather they will have less pungency and even a smoother surface. My Yellow 7 Pots in 2009 were very smooth when they ripened in January. I overwintered the plants and in summer of 2010 all pods were extremely lumpy and pebbly skin. So outdoor temps do affect pod texture. So Al’s Moruga might be slightly lower in heat but it was a Moruga. And Al can handle heat pretty well because he eats so much spicy food. Also true Scorpions like Butch T strain can get very smooth. It is the 7 Pots that have the rougher texture.

    I ate one of Jim’s morugas, and it was ridiculous hot.

    I believe you Jim, I was not sure by looking at his reaction, I know how I would react since I have tried some of the hottest peppers that I could find, these guys are insane.

    Cajohn has a Moruga sauce that you can get at amazon.com for a little over $12 shipped, it’s just called Trinidad Scorpion Sauce, but the ingredients say Moruga Scorpion. I just ordered it and I’m excited to try it, never had the Moruga before and it’s a pretty good price. I’m kindof scared after seeing this video, but the sauce probably won’t be as hot as eating the pepper straight.

    Have you tried this sauce? Or any other moruga sauce? I’m really scared now.

    Yes, CaJohn sells a few of them. The Trinidad Scorpion puree sauce was Morugas, and it lit me up really bad. Hottest natural non-extract sauce I ever had.

    I got the Cajohn moruga sauce today, it is sooo hot! I love it though, it has a good flavor. I could only use a few drops on my dinner. I wonder if any chile pepper will ever beat the Moruga for the hottest record. I can’t imagine anything hotter than this. Firehead, is the salsa hotter than the sauce?

    Well, it’s damn hot. But of course there are other goodies mixed in to make it a salsa…I can only tolerate more thn one or 2 chips if I mix it into cheese or sour cream.

    I had the moruga sauce mixed in with some cheese sauce last night on tortilla chips. It was awesome. I think this is going to be great on mac and cheese and subs too.
