The Black Scorpion Tongue Chilli is a very rare type of Capsicum annuum that, under the right conditions, can reveal stripes inside the pod. It is absolutely necessary to have strong sunlight in order to bring out these one-of-a-kind designs.
The Black Scorpion Tongue Chilli has unusually dark purple leaves, as opposed to the typical green colour, and even the flower pedals take on this colour. This is in contrast to the typical green colour. The pepper fruit develops its distinctive striped pattern as it matures and changes from a dark purple to a rich red colour.
The history of where the Black Scorpion Tongue Chilli was first discovered is still a mystery.
Seed Quantity 15 Seeds
Species Capsicum annuum
Heat Level (Scoville Rating) Medium (50,000-100,000 SHU)
Pod Description A mesmerising variety of colours, such as deep purple, yellow, orange, and finally red, when mature, appear on the pods. The Black Scorpion Tongue Chilli is a unique heirloom chilli pepper to add to any garden. It produces pods 4 cm long and 1.5-2 cm wide with extraordinary flavours and colours, delivering a robust and sweet taste.
Also known as None Known
The plant is capable of reaching over one metre in height when grown in a pot, aiding its ease of care and maintenance. Supportive planting stakes may be required once pods begin to form, as their weight can cause branches to droop.
Cooking & Eating
Black Scorpion Tongue Chilli's formidable tastes crunchy, sweet and a bit salty, plus sort of apple-like and makes it a perfect component for constructing a fantastic and highly colourful salsa. The unique flavour of this type of pepper delivers an intense, but balanced heat which imparts a delightful complexity to sauces, stews, and salsas.

Beautifully box of biennial seeds. I haven’t sown them yet but I’m looking forward to doing so. Delivered promptly and the packaging is all recyclable and so prettily presented with two cute strawflowers inside. Thank you
Ordered a couple of chilli varieties that I hadn’t found anywhere else. They arrived within just a couple of days (I’m in Kent) and included an extra package of seeds as a “thank you” which I thought was such a lovely touch, thank you! Very excited to get growing 😊
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

Top quality seeds and so beautifully presented - I bought them for myself but it was like receiving a gorgeous gift!
Great service, prompt delivery and beautifully packaged. It was for a gift so not tried them but they look lovely.
I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
