Bhut Jolokia White
From Tatiana's TOMATOBase
|Bhut Jolokia White|
|Heat level||extremely hot|
|Scoville Heat Units (SHU)||800,000 - 1,500,000|
- Late maturing. 3' tall plants. Creamy white colored pods, smoother than red Bhut Jolokia, very beautiful. Extremely hot and highly aromatic. The seeds that we purchased at Nicky's Nursery were not very pure, as most plants produced red peppers, and only one plant had correct creamy fruits. Perhaps this variant is still not fully stable?

- A creamy-white variant of Bhut Jolokia pepper, which is reportedly one of the world’s hottest chilli with an official Scoville heat rating (SHU) of 1,001,304 SHU, twice that of the previous record holder, the Red Savina.
- According to Wikipedia, Bhut Jolokia is an interspecific hybrid cultivated in the Indian states of Assam, Nagaland, and Manipur. There was initially some confusion and disagreement about whether it was a Capsicum frutescens or a Capsicum chinense pepper, but DNA tests showed it to be an interspecies hybrid, mostly C. chinense with some C. frutescens genes.
