Is it just us, or is it beginning to feel a bit hot in here? The exotic Black Cobra pepper does tend to send temperatures rising: on the Scoville scale, a system devised in 1912 to measure the heat quotient of hot peppers, the Black Cobra rates from 20,000 to 40,000.
As it matures, the Black Cobra pepper bears a striking color pattern: it starts off green, turns jet black, and eventually ripens to a rich red. The pepper is at its most dangerous (meaning: spiciest) when black. The shiny pepper defies gravity by growing upwards to the sky, as if reaching for the hottest place in the solar system, the sun!
A perfect combination of beauty and spice, the Black Cobra imparts a wonderful, slow burn when fused with our Peruvian dark chocolate.
