Bhut Jolokia - Purple
This very rare Purple Bhut Jolokia* has a nice sweet flavor with a good burn. Your lips will swell and your tongue will go numb, but you’ll enjoy it! A rare natural variant of the red Bhut Jolokia. Pods start out bright green, then turn deep purple and then red with dark blotches at maturity. Pods grow on bushy 30” tall plants. A really exciting pepper to grow.
