The Trinidad moruga scorpion pepper (Capsicum Chinese) is native to the district of Moruga in Trinidad and Tobago. The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion was created by Wahid Ogeer of Trinidad. Paul Bosland, a chili pepper expert and director of the Chile Pepper Institute, said, "You take a bite. It doesn't seem so bad, and then it builds and it builds and it builds. So it is quite nasty."
Aside from the heat, the Trinidad moruga scorpion has a tender fruit-like flavor, which makes it a sweet-hot combination.
