Naga Smooky Rainbow
‘Stunning chilli with dark purple stems’
Naga Smooky Rainbow was created by Drax Diego. A cross between the Black Naga and the Pink Tiger. This new variety is quite remarkable with dark purple stems, purple flowers and dark green leaves.
The colour change of the peppers goes from dark purple to a dark red with black tinge as well. When the pods are fully ripen, they are dark red and black.
The plant grows well in a pot to about 70 cm in height and spreads out. A real eye catching plant when it is full of purple flowers and pods.
Flavour wise the peppers are very sweet tasting and one of our top 10 in flavours. You also will get a lot of fruit as it is a great producing chilli.
With a cross it usually takes 7 generation to be stable, so it is not completely stable yet and you can expect some pod variation. However, it is such an stunning variety, so definitely one to grow.
All in all Naga Smooky Rainbow is an amazing looking chilli and a great producer of these tasty chilli peppers. Heat wise we very told it’s fairly mild, but not ours. It was hot, between habanero and ghost pepper heat, so definitely a great choice for any dish requiring some heat.
