Chocolate Bhut Jolokia

(Capsicum chinense)

Chocolate Bhut Jolokia (Capsicum chinense)

The Chocolate Bhut Jolokia is a natural variant of the Bhut Jolokia. It became available to the public in 2008 through Frontal Agritech Assam, India. It has the heat level of a Red Bhut Jolokia but also has a sweet undertone. One of the most delicious Superhot chiles I have ever tasted.

This species does not germinate as easy as the normal Bhut Jolokia and can take up to 6 weeks. So if your a novice grower better to try something else. If you grow this chile plant in a heated seed try growing it by itself because other seeds will sprout first and then you will be removing clear the humidity cover before your Chocolate Bhut Jolokia sprouts.

At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to try it yourself contact us for seeds, plants (March-August) and fresh chiles (September).

We also grow the Trinidad 7 Pot, Trinidad Scorpion, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant varieties!
