A couple years ago, maybe 2015, a pepper came out of the UK called the Komodo Dragon. It was one of the untested hottest peppers in the world. Thing is, it did not look like a super hot in any of the photos. No wrinkles. No blisters. Per CPI, the thing that makes a super hot is that the placenta grows on the walls of the pepper. More wrinkles means more internal surface area for that placenta to grow. I was curious and got some seeds in. Grew like a habanero, tasted like a habanero, heat like a habanero. I just kind of blew it off figuring the seed source was a scam. Now it is a couple seasons later and I am reading the same reviews from lots of folk.
Wondering why and how something like that happens. I can understand people talking about the next hottest when something is in the 2m shu range, but a habanero?
Has anyone else grown the Komodo Dragon and had different results?
