Now we are getting into crazy hot territory :).
I have read that this variety was developed by the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute hence the CARDI part of the pepper’s name :). The scorpion part is because the end of the chili looks like a scorpion stinger.
Most of my internet friends have suggested I toughen up and try one :). However I liked one person’s suggestion that I have captured here as a FoodHack.
This plant is a a spreader rather than a vertical powerhouse.
Full scorching hot Perth sun!
- Keep it lightly pruned to encourage flowering
- My TS Cardi and Jalapeno pods got hit hard by grubs in April so I sprayed with pyrethrum
