7 Pot Brain Strain
The 7 Pot Brain Strain was developed in North Carolina by David Cappiello. He developed it after breeding a pepper that originated from Trinidad and Tobago. The name is a humorous reference to the unique texture of the pepper. Its red skin has the crinkled and lumpy texture of a human brain. The 7 Pot Brain Strain may have a smoky, sweet taste but you will have to work through the heat to get there. At 1.3 million Scoville heat units it has a fierce kick. The pepper is perfect for blending into sauces and stews.
