7-Pot Bubblegum is the original “bubblegum” chile, a red 7-pot type, in which the gorgeous carmine color creeps over the calyx and up the stem. Since this variety became available, there were many crosses made. In result, we now see chocolate and peach and more versions. The 7-Pot Bubblegum was reportedly created by John Harper of the United Kingdom, via a cross of Yellow 7 Pod x Moruga Scorpion. (Yellow Pod? Here is that pod versus pot thing again.) True to its savage parents, the 7-Pot Bubblegum is screamingly hot, so much so that I have not been able to notice the sweet and fruity flavor with floral undertones that have been reported by others with greater tolerance to chile heat than I have. Please note that this variety has gone by many name versions, including: 7-Pod Bubblegum; Bubblegum 7-Pot; Trinidad 7-Pot Bubblegum; and various ways of writing “bubblegum,” from BubbleGum to Bubble Gum.
It is gorgeous and prolific and quite hot, and I was able to bag only a few fruits before the unseasonable rains put a stop to my bagging efforts. I may have more to offer in this coming season.
