The BBG7 Roughrider pepper is a fiery challenger in the chili world, a hybrid that takes heat to a new level. It’s a cross between the infamous Carolina Reaper and the 7 Pot Bubblegum (BBG7), known for its unique trait of the pepper’s color bleeding into the stem. This pepper packs a serious punch, typically ranking very high on the Scoville scale, pushing over one million SHU.
In addition to the heat, there is a fruity, slightly floral flavor profile, making it a favorite among heat enthusiasts who appreciate complex flavors… if you can make it that long to actually taste the flavors. Its wrinkled, rough texture and vibrant red hue makes this chili look pretty nifty in the garden!
