Background

The 7-Pot Jonah in an extremely hot 7-Pot pepper from the nation of Trinidad.  They pods have thin walls with a bumpy exterior. The ripe color is bright red. The pod I tried was grown and sent to me by Jesus Rosario, or Puerto Rico.

Notes

Pod weight: 8 grams
Amount eaten: 1/4 pod
Heat: 8
Flavor:  6 – floral
Burn Profile: Mostly mouth
Effects: Some initial stomach discomfort, but went away soon after.
Cap Cramps Potential: Did not experience any, but the potential is there if eating enough, or on an empty stomach.

Review

It had a very strong aroma, that I could smell right after cutting open. There was a lot of placental tissue. The 1/4 piece I tried was mostly floral tasting, and brought immediate heat. When I swallowed there was a tinge of bitterness, which went away soon after. It reminded me a lot of the Trinidad Scorpion pepper. It brought a lot of salivation right away, and intense mouth burn. It was very potent, especially from a 1/4 of the pod.

Hi this is Peter Stanley, welcome to my channel

0:00:03.200,0:00:06.160
Today I want to do a taste test on a 7-Pot Jonah

0:00:07.460,0:00:10.420
This was sent to me and grown by Jesus Rosario

0:00:10.420,0:00:11.540
from Puerto Rico

0:00:12.980,0:00:13.700
it’s a very

0:00:14.500,0:00:15.620
nice looking pod

0:00:16.840,0:00:19.000
from what I’ve read they are like a larger

0:00:19.540,0:00:20.420
type of 7-Pot

0:00:21.460,0:00:22.340
larger plant

0:00:23.320,0:00:24.760
pods get fairly large

0:00:25.660,0:00:26.160
the

0:00:27.460,0:00:28.420
skin’s kind of

0:00:29.780,0:00:30.660
kind of bumpy

0:00:33.300,0:00:33.800
and

0:00:36.500,0:00:38.660
looks really good, looks kind of

0:00:39.120,0:00:40.080
scorpion like

0:00:40.660,0:00:41.160
almost

0:00:41.160,0:00:43.400
like a Trinidan Scorpion, this is from Trinidad

0:00:45.400,0:00:47.900
supposedly they’re pretty fruity, I’ve never had one

0:00:47.900,0:00:49.620
but they’re supposedly really hot

0:00:50.680,0:00:52.200
let me get my scales and

0:00:52.760,0:00:54.760
cut this open and we’ll take a closer look

0:00:58.400,0:00:59.200
it’s 8 grams

0:01:15.840,0:01:17.440
you can smell it already

0:01:17.580,0:01:19.580
it looks and smells really hot

0:01:25.120,0:01:26.240
it’s thin walled

0:01:26.560,0:01:27.600
lot of placenta

0:01:31.600,0:01:33.520
definitely have a 7 Pot smell

0:01:34.020,0:01:35.300
it’s really strong

0:01:40.040,0:01:40.840
pretty oily

0:01:43.440,0:01:44.400
give it a taste

0:01:44.400,0:01:46.980
yeah I’m not going to eat a whole pod, not even a half a pod

0:01:48.380,0:01:49.740
so I’m gonna do about

0:01:50.920,0:01:52.120
1/4 of a pod I guess

0:01:55.900,0:01:59.500
that’ll give me a good representation of the whole pod

0:01:59.500,0:02:02.480
still probably a lot more than I should, I’m trying to cut back

0:02:02.480,0:02:04.880
on as many whole pod reviews this year

0:02:06.520,0:02:08.760
alright, so this is the 7Pot Jonah

0:02:08.760,0:02:10.040
from Jesus Rosario

0:02:19.300,0:02:21.620
yeah, it’s real 7 Pot kind of floral

0:02:25.860,0:02:26.580
lot of burn

0:02:27.720,0:02:28.440
in my mouth

0:02:29.660,0:02:31.340
feel it kind of going down

0:02:32.320,0:02:34.080
starting to salivate a lot

0:02:42.960,0:02:45.920
don’t really get the fruitiness people talk about

0:02:46.820,0:02:49.620
might just be kind of overwhelmed with the

0:02:50.600,0:02:51.400
floralness

0:02:52.940,0:02:53.740
and the heat

0:02:53.740,0:02:58.000
sometimes with peppers you get than flavor more as an aftertaste

0:02:59.780,0:03:00.280
but

0:03:03.440,0:03:04.880
yeah, it’s really hot

0:03:06.320,0:03:07.760
glad I only ate 1/4 pod

0:03:12.660,0:03:14.580
yeah, still salivating a lot

0:03:17.660,0:03:20.380
feel a little pain in my stomach, not much

0:03:20.380,0:03:21.680
just a tiny little bit

0:03:22.820,0:03:25.940
I ate a little something beforehand, it helped

0:03:29.660,0:03:32.220
yeah, it’s not a bad flavor at all, it’s

0:03:32.220,0:03:34.160
a tiny bit bitter when I first swallowed

0:03:34.940,0:03:36.140
really really hot

0:03:36.340,0:03:37.140
hot upfront

0:03:37.700,0:03:39.880
not getting the fruitiness people talk about

0:03:42.640,0:03:44.640
mostly kind of a perfumey 7 Pot

0:03:44.640,0:03:46.380
not perfumey but kind of a floral

0:03:46.380,0:03:48.380
still overall good mouth burn

0:03:48.380,0:03:51.320
it’s kind of moved to the back of my throat a little bit

0:03:53.720,0:03:56.520
it must be really powerful to use in sauces

0:03:57.120,0:03:57.920
and powders

0:04:00.760,0:04:02.680
really glad I only ate 1/4 pod

0:04:03.520,0:04:04.880
that’s burning me up

0:04:09.260,0:04:10.300
it’s staring to

0:04:10.600,0:04:12.120
go down now a little bit

0:04:12.120,0:04:13.840
or it’s peaked, it’s not gone down

0:04:15.740,0:04:18.620
it is more kind of going to the back of my ears

0:04:18.880,0:04:21.280
don’t have any stomach problems now

0:04:23.160,0:04:25.000
nose is running a little bit

0:04:26.960,0:04:28.320
well, I guess I wanna

0:04:28.960,0:04:30.880
I’ll go ahead and wrap this up

0:04:31.700,0:04:33.140
yeah, it’s really hot

0:04:33.280,0:04:33.920
