A cross between the Red Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Chile) and Pimenta De Neyde, is a new and rare pepper. Plants produce amazing yields of 3 ½" long by 1" wide black wrinkled hot peppers. As this is a newer variety, ripened fruits may look dark purple or red in color. Peppers are extremely hot, have medium-thick flesh, and turn from green to black when mature. They have a smooth and shiny texture with some irregularity in shape. Delicious with sweet, fruity, and earthy flavors. We know this super-hot pepper will be your new favorite! Non-Isolated.
