The Arseclown Jolokia is a very cool Chinense variety from Australia and who wouldn’t want an Arseclown in their garden? The plant grows to about 70 cm in a pot and would grow bigger if you plant it in the ground.
This variety looks really great and very different than other naga varieties. The pods are 4 to 5 cm in length and 1.5 to 2 cm in diameter with a ribbed surface. The pods start off green and end up a bright red, when they are fully mature. It takes 120 days or more before you will have ripe pods (Caution: The pods can already be very hot while still green).
This chilli pepper would be excellent in a really good ‘Chicken tikka masala’, in a Hot Chilli Sauce or make your own super charged chilli powder.
Heat Wise: EXTREME
Flavour Wise: This Jolokia pepper has a sweet taste with a hint of that distinct Bhut/Ghost flavour.
