The Seven Pod is a Capsicum chinense native to the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. The name of the chili derives from the fact that its spiciness equals that of 7 chili peppers and that only one Seven Pod can spice up to 7 pots of beans.
It seems that during the 17th century in the Caribbean Islands, pirates and poachers exhausted from years and years of wars wanted something that could add some fire to their stews and pots of beans…
This chili pepper is extremely rare and extremely spicy! When unripe, the fruit is yellow, orange and green, while near the end of maturation it’s characterized by a darker brown colour and a very wrinkley surface. It can reach 1,800,000 SHU.
Particular low temperature techniques of humidity extraction have been employed for the production of this powder, making it possible to keep unaltered the original scent of the chilli pepper.
