Trinidad Scorpion

I just bought this trinidad scorpion chilli for $5. What a bargain, considering people around here sell pods for $2 each or a tiny plant for $10, so I am stoked.

The plant is about 30cm in height and is extremely root bound as you can see

The area I am planting it is not mulched yet and the weeds are starting to grow back after being cut down.

Look at the roots! it has barely any soil in it.
Newspaper will block all weeds. You can see my small mango tree in the back ground.
I wont have to weed this for a long while

I hope to try one pod when it bears fruit. I’ve seen videos of people trying it and they all look horrible but you only live once and I’ll definitely have a go!
