Bhut Jolokia Red/Orange – Approx. 15 seeds
One of the world’s hottest chilli peppers with at least 2-3 times the heat of a red habanero. Originating in Northern India and also known as the “Ghost Chilli”, the orange/red lantern shaped fruit have a hint of citrus with their intense heat. The big bushy plants can be a tad brittle so ripe fruit should be cut rather than pulled from the plant. Stake to one metre.
The Bhut Jolokia pepper generally rates anywhere between 855,000 and 1,463,700 Scoville units on the Scoville heat index.
