The Big Black Mama is one of the super hot chilli varieties and was created by Troy Primo (an American chilli grower) and is a cross between the Naga Morich and the Douglah 7 pod. 

The plant can grow up to a metre tall and is prolific, producing lots of fruits that ripen to a dark rich brown in the mid to late summer. The pod have a wrinkly surface and can be up to 6 or 7 cm long and up to 3cm wide.

The plants can be grown in pots or directly in the ground. Pots should be at least 2 litres, but 5 litres and above is preferred.

Heat level: extremely hot, >1,000,000 SHUs. Learn about Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) here.

Good service just awaiting the seedlings to come through

Fast and efficient

Seeds arrived ahead of time . Excellent service. Planted today . Looking forward to seeing them grow 🤞


Very problematic and weird to name a chilli "big black mama" even moreso because the guy who created it is white. Objectification/fetishizing vibes
