Hi just received my herbs - very nice quality thank you. Just to say that the cardboard box had almost fallen apart so you might want to considered a waxed box or something stronger.

Originating from the North East of India this Chilli is known under a variety of names depending on the province it's grown in; whilst not an exhaustive list, it is also known as...

  • 'Bhut Jolokia' (which translates as 'Ghost Chilli')
  • 'Bih Jolokia' (which translates as 'Poison Chilli')
  • 'Borbih Jolokia'
  • 'Nagahari'
  • 'Naga Jolokia' (extreme heat representing the aggressive temperament of the warriors of the neighbouring Naga community)
  • 'Raja Chilli'
  • 'Raja Mircha' (which translates as 'King of Chillies')

Extensive research and DNA testing by Frontal Agritech and The Chilli Pepper Institute (CPI) of New Mexico State University have proven all of the above to be the same variety.

Whatever you choose to call this Chilli, it is devastatingly hot; but to be doubly sure that you are getting the hottest of the hottest we only produce our seed from mother plants produced from Chilli Pepper Institute seed.

Amongst all that heat it also has a wonderful citrus smoke flavour. Our friends at our local Indian restaurant tell us this is a much coveted variety and they would be far happier to cook with a tiny amount of this than a whole 'cooler' chilli. We have successfully (and safely) used this chilli in cooking at home for a while now and made some staggeringly spicy Chilli Jam for the past few years. And so, if treated with care, we recommend this as a variety that is both rewarding and attractive to grow.

The pale green fruits have a crinkled appearance and mature to a rich red, measuring 2"-3" (5-8 cm) in length and 1"-1" (2.5-4 cm) in diameter (at the shoulder) tapering to a point. The plant has a fairly dense habit growing to approximately 2-3 feet (60-90 cm) and a similar spread.

To ensure good germination a constant compost temperature of 82° - 86° f (28° - 30° C) is recommended. Germination can be slow and take three weeks or more.

  • Origin: India
  • Heat: Volcanic - approximately 1,000,000 SHUs +
