The 7 Pod Doughlah Chili Pepper

The 7 Pod Doughlah pepper is also known as the 7 pot pepper. It is from the Chaguanas region of Trinidad. This chili is used widely in spicy dishes found in the Caribbean and supposedly gets its nickname of “7 pot” pepper because the pod is hot enough to add heated spice to 7 pots of soup. The pod is shaped similar to a habanero, but it has distinguishing marks or bumps that makes it different in appearance. The pepper changes in color as it goes through the ripening process.


Heat Ratings

The Scoville Heat Unit rating for the Doughlah pepper can be varied, but it’s hot. It is consistently ranked between 1 million and 1.5 million SHUs, which basically means it is up there with some of the hottest peppers in the world.

Growing the 7 Pod Doughlah Chili

Plants can be grown by planting the pepper’s seeds in small containers. They should be started about 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost is expected. The seeds should be planted between a quarter and a half-inch deep. In order for the seeds to germinate properly, the seeds and seedlings should be kept in an area that will maintain a temperature between 75 and 90 degrees (F). The soil should be relatively moist all the time.


After the 7 Pot Douglah seedlings have sprouted the plants should remain in small containers until they have some leaves developing, then they can be transplanted outdoors.  This is one of the slower plants to germinate, but they can be cultivated in the right environment. Remember, they are native to the Caribbean so they will thrive in a hot, humid climate.
