Bhut Jolokia Yellow

Capsicum Annuum

The yellow Bhut Jolokia has a sweet and fruity flavour and will light up your garden like a Christmas tree.  Bhut Jolokia are very rare and pack a nuclear punch in your mouth.

The pods start off green and then turn into a bright yellow colour.

Heat Factor: Until 2011 this was the hottest pepper, rating between 800 000 and 1 001 300 on the Scoville Heat units. Bhut Jolokia chilli pepper is 125 times hotter than a Jalapeno.

Chilli peppers grow best in hot climates and won’t tolerate frost and they enjoy full sun. The ideal growing temperatures are between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius.

Chillies can grow in containers as long as they are positioned in a sun-filled windowsill. The size of the pot should be at least 10cm in diameter. When you notice roots growing out of the drainage holes, it is time to replant into a larger container.
