New Record Holder- The Moruga Scorpion Pepper

New record holder, the Moruga Scorpion with seed grower Jim Duffy at the New Mexico Pepper Chile Pepper Institute Conference. I received these pics in my inbox this morning, but no official word has yet been released. Notice the Moruga has exceeded the 2 million scoville rating. Wow, Firehead Thomas and I ate one of those!

Congrats Jim Duffy. Will this be the new Jimmy D Moruga Scorpion?

    It has been released to the Leadership Council and the conference attendees. A press release will be sent out after the conclusion of the conference. This is exciting news! These numbers were the result of replicated trials of the listed super-hots.

    Yes, I still have the original seed pack I received back in late 2006 with the Trinidad Scorpion Morouga Blend seeds. Worked long and hard to get them! I was told they were very special. Looks like my contact knew their stuff.
