Bhut Jolkia Purple
A purple fruited variant of the popular and blisteringly hot Bhut Jolokia. Pods ripen to purple and finally to red. The purple fruited strain produces pods that are shorter than the classic red type with heat is a bit lower as well, making the variety somewhat of a mid point between habanero's and jolokia's. Despite its non-world record setting heat, it still packs quite a punch, the fruits are very attractive and it makes for overall delightful growing. Handle with rubber gloves and wash everything thoroughly with soap and cold water after cutting into the peppers.
