This Armageddon chocolate is a super hot with intense overpowering heat. High production of capsaicin oil in every pepper. Definitely a contestant in one of the top hottest. I do not know much background information on this pepper. Altlthough I have heard it originally came from England. And the red Armageddon has been used in contests every year over ther this from the creator Michael Heckart A.K.A. Wicked Mike. And in this season 2019 I grew them isolated.
