This rare pepper is a chocolate version of the King Naga Pepper. The origin is believed to be from Bangladesh like other Nagas.

The Black Naga plant is very productive and produces huge dark brown pods that dwarf the Chocolate Ghost in size. Pods are pendant shaped, with some growing in different contortions, and they have shiny, wrinkly skin. The stability of this variety is unknown, so it is possible you could get red King Naga pods. 

Black Naga peppers have a nice sweet-with-heat flavor like other chocolate varieties. With the average heat measuring between 700,000-800,000 SHUs, these peppers have an incredible biting heat to them, so we urge you to be careful cooking and consuming them!

So far so good...

Planted 5 seeds, and 3 seeds germinated.Of the 3, one of them has really took off and is over 3 feet tall and producing peppers like has about 8 peppers that are dark green in color currently, waiting to see if they turn chocolate or red (since there is some possible stability issues).

Easy to germinate. I have one bush going for a few months, and it always has a dozen peppers on it. Very hot, but they seem to remain more of a dark green with some yellow undertones, and never truly turn "black".

Not a great germination rate. Purchased 4 different peppers and these are the only ones that have not germinated.

Hello, we are here to help! Please reach out and we can walk through germination tips and tricks for you! Thank you!

No germination. Not really worth a single star.

I planted a variety of seeds including black Naga seeds. I was excited to try all these peppers but I planted 60 seeds with a 0% germination rate after about 2 months. I've been sprouting lots of other seeds, but none of the seeds from pepper joe's seem to do anything, and they cost more.

Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85* and can take up to 6 weeks to germinate. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have!
