Named because some of the pods resemble a 'brain'. A growing amount of devout Chileheads and Hot Pepper enthusiasts say this could be the next Champ for the Hottest Pepper. It has not been tested yet. This hefty Chile has volcanic heat and much more placental tissue than other peppers. It may be the coolest Hot Pepper pod you've ever grown. There has been some discussion about it's similarity to the Moruga, my opinion is that they have distinctly different features like pod shape, plant shape and taste differences. Grow them both and see for yourself.
