Borg 9 Chocolate Chilli Seeds – 10 Fresh Seeds
The Chocolate Borg 9 emerges as a distinctive iteration of the Red Borg 9, born from the crossbreeding of the Red Naglah and the 7 Pot Bubblegum peppers. Originally cultivated by Jon Harper, the inception of the Borg 9 was a tribute to Ernest Borgnine, with its name paying homage to the actor. Notably categorized as a superhot pepper, the Chocolate Borg 9 owes its reputation to its unparalleled intensity. Mirroring other members of the superhot family, its flavour profile encompasses fruity and sweet notes, accompanied by a subtle smokiness. In appearance, Chocolate Borg 9 pods display a unique amalgamation, reminiscent of the characteristics found in a 7 Pot, Carolina Reaper, and Chocolate Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, all harmoniously merged into a single entity.
The heat level of the Borg 9 at over 1,100,000 SHU is astounding, often compared to the notorious Carolina Reaper. Its flavor is fruity but is quickly overshadowed by its blistering spiciness. This pepper is not for the faint-hearted and is often used sparingly to add heat to dishes or in hot sauces.
