Distinctions: Grows a fruit body between 10cm to 15cm blocked.
- Extreme Capsicum count: Enhanced version contains an extreme density of capsaicinoids, particularly capsaicin, which relates directly to the intensity of the chili pepper. It is, essentially, the Galaxy's hottest Chili pepper. It has a fruity taste, with the initial bite being sweet and then immediately turning into 'Sullust Molten Lava'.

PharmaTech's Research and development team with the conception of the "Eden Project" have been sending scouts, researchers, and used it's vast resources under Arceneau Trade's Colagoramate's arsenal to go forth and try to find new species of plants and botanicals that may produce new medicines, technology, or sustainable energy sources.
Under the research of the Eden Program, Morodin, Ho'din, and Ithorian horticulturalists and botanists used the Morodin's natural slime to enhanced various fruits, vegetables, and herbs. The most distinctive feature of the Morodins was their ability to secrete a nutrient slime trail that promoted growth and mutation in plant life that it covered. The composition of the secretion varied with the Morodin's diet, and they were always experimenting with new combinations by eating plants, exuding the secretion to create a new, more nutritious, strain of flora which then entered their food chain.
One of the results is the Cater'sHat Pepper. Preliminary testing and research have indicated that the extreme density of capsaicinoids, particularly capsaicin, which relates directly to the intensity of the chili pepper. It is, essentially, the Galaxy's hottest Chili pepper. It has a fruity taste, with the initial bite being sweet and then immediately turning into 'Sullust Molten Lava'.
The original plant was discovered on Sullust, where the enriched black soil amidst the small underground pockets of vegetation gave way to this particular pepper. Enhanced with the Moridin's slime, it is by far the hottest pepper in the galaxy. Thus why Yum Bunnies, a restaurant & bar chain under Arceneau Trade, contracted with PharmaTech to continue producing this delicious but perhaps fatal, chili pepper.
It is said that Yum Bunnies restaurants use the Cater's Hat Pepper in a secret house sauce for their Reaper Bantha wings eating competition at the Southern Systems Business Expo. With a claim to fame for the one who can eat the most of this sauce, one can only wonder just how much the individuals who eat this regret life for many days after, and it may potentially give a headache so intense and immediate that it might send the sapient to the medbay. Might experience dry heaves, and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome. The potential for nausea and extreme irritation of the mouth. Blue milk has been known to alleviate some of the heat, but it will not disperse all.
Essentially, be prepared to regret life for at least a week every time you hit the refresher.
However, if used in moderation, the fruity flavor and heat may be palatable for those who desire some heat to their meal.
It is currently cultivated at The Eden Project Biodomes and Eden BioDome Stations
