The Naga Viper was created in England by chilli farmer Gerald Fowler of The Chilli Pepper Company, based in Cark, Cumbria. It is an unstable three-way hybrid produced from the Naga Morich, the Bhut Jolokia and the Trinidad Scorpion (some of the world's hottest peppers). Due to its hybrid nature, it is unable to produce offspring exactly like the parent due to segregation of alleles and therefore traits. The Chilli Pepper Company is continuing its work to stabilize the variety.
