Review

Phillip and I tried this pod. The pod size was smaller than usual, outside texture was very bumpy. Normally there is a center protrusion, but this one had none. After cutting open I could see quite a bit of placenta, not many seeds, and lots of capsicum oil. The flavor was very good, slightly floral but very sweet. The heat didn’t really hit until after swallowing. It was a little bit of a creeper but peaked earlier than I thought it would. It was very hot, I estimate in the 600-700K Scoville range. Normally this strain is much hotter. I think it’s because it was the first pod, that formed indoors under grow lights. I think the future fruits from this plant later in the season should be much closer to normal range.
