Meet the King Naga pepper, the largest of the Naga variety of peppers. Hailing from Northeast India and Bangladesh, the name "Naga" refers to a group of serpent deities.

Grow the King Naga in your own garden and watch these plants shoot up to 4 ft. tall (taller when planted directly in the ground!). These plants are heavy producers of these small, 2" long pods that change colors from green to its bright red. Peppers have a conical shape with a bumpy and glossy skin.

The King Naga has similar super hot heat and flavor the Naga Morich, ranging between 700,000-800,000 SHUs! Beyond the heat, you'll enjoy a sweet, slightly fruity, almost floral flavor hit your tongue. This is a pepper you'll want to handle carefully, as a small amount will provide enough heat for your food!

Strong growers, but nothing like the pictures!

I grew 14 plants of this variety and so far, all the plants are strong plants, that require nothing less than 5 gallon pots minimum.
These plants appreciate the root space, so give them bigger pots and they will love you for it.

These plants are very prolific and are loaded with fruits and flowers.

The King Naga is a crossed pepper, it has black pepper origins too, so it is not a stable variety at all.
I have fruits on all 14 plants and the fruit from each is different than the other. None of them is red and looks like the descriptive images, so keep that in mind if you decide to grow this one.
So far, I have pods that look like habaneros, some like scotch bonnets, some like bhut jolokias, but none of them have that bumpy skin and none are red so far.
I have some black throwback and some chocolate pods so far.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.
