The Chocolate Bhut Jolokia is a natural (color) variant of the Bhut Jolokia and up until 2011 was the hottest pepper in the world!
It has the same heat level of a Bhut Jolokia (aka Naga Jolokia) but is noticeably sweeter with fruity overtones.
Fruits exhibit a wide range of characteristics in fruit size, color, pod shape, and rough and smooth skin. Plants offered are from the peppers in the photo above. The Bhut Jolokia loves heat and humidity, but with a little extra care and love it will grow well in a cooler climate, especially if grown in a pot.
Sold in a 2.62" wide x 3.5" deep pot.
