The Chocolate Bhutlah is a cross between the Bhut Jolokia and the Douglah. That lineage creates a very hot, nutty, chocolate pepper! The Chocolate Bhutlah pepper is sought for its sweet earthiness and a quick yet dangerous bite. The Chocolate Bhutlah plant and pod shape are similar to a ghost pepper, but the only difference is its color as it matures to a dark brown chocolate color. You can expect the pods to grow larger than most 7 Pot peppers and will have wrinkled skins.
Fun Fact: word has it in the super hot pepper community that this pepper could be the pepper to dethrone the Carolina Reaper!
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
