The Kraken Scorpion (Capsicum Chinense) is a large brown superhot variety created by Mike Hess of Peoria, Illinois in 2013.
Being a cross between the Bhut Jolokia India Carbon and the Trinidad Chocolate Scorpion, the peppers are elongated but also fatter than any Ghost or Naga pepper. They sometimes grow a little signature tail at the pointed end of the pepper. The Kraken Scorpion peppers have a very rough pimply outer skin and can grow large enough to almost fill the palm of an average hand!. Kraken chiles ripen from green to brown and sometimes to a dark brown. The flavor is floral and earthy, some would say smoky and the heat is extreme.
