Bhut Jolokia, Chocolate Hot Pepper

Rating:
98% of 100

95 days. Same malevolent shape and form as Bhut Jolokia, and the heat level is comparably wicked, but this natural variation ripens red-brown to a rich milk chocolate. Considered sweeter than the Red Bhut. (This variety has a reputation for being even trickier to germinate than the standard Red Bhut; bottom heat should be considered essential for germination, which may still take weeks.)

    • 8-12 hours of Sun

Growing Tips: Start indoors in bright light 8-12 weeks before last frost date. Heat mat helps to warm soil and speed germination. Peppers often appreciate a bit of afternoon shade during the hottest summer weather.
