Chili Pepper: Tepin

 

Taste:

I haven’t tried them yet but https://pepperheadsforlife.com puts it at a mere 300,000 SHU. Mere I say with a slight tremble. This is another of what I call a pretty chili as it has lots of little small ball shaped fruit that don’t look in the least bit scary like the Carolina Reaper or Trinidad Scorpion Butch T.
