Yellow Bhut Jolokia
By Jim (Habanero) Duffy
Yellow Bhut Jolokia (Capsicum chinense)
The Yellow Bhut Jolokia is a natural variant of the Red Bhut Jolokia. Now some honesty. There are seed sellers that are running
around saying this is as hot as a Bhut Jolokia. I had these tested and heat levels came in between 250,000 and 400,000 Scoville units.
Now you might be saying wow thats a whole lot lower than the Bhut Jolokia. Not really. Very few Bhut pods test over 1,000,000. Most Bhut
Jolokia average between 300,000 and 800,000 Scoville units. One pepper did top over 1,000,000 for new record but that is not the norm.
Still former Record Holder Red Savina never duplicated it's over 500,000 record either.
Now this pepper is hotter than Fatalii or Devil's
Tongue Yellow. It does have a Bhut Jolokia taste but better than the Red version in my opinion. This chile plant also produces better. A great tasting
chile with great heat. Sorry but no hype. I don't need hype to sell seeds. I will stick with honesty instead.
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
