White Bhut Jolokia
“Also known as White Ghost Pepper”
White Bhut Jolokia chilli is a plant that looks absolutely spectacular. It grows like a normal Bhut. It’s a solid plant that gets to around a meter tall in the pot. If you plant it in the ground it would get bigger to about a meter and half tall. A good producer for a bhut. The chilli pods are about 5-6 cm long and 2.5-3 cm wide that start off a light green and then go to a creamy white, eventually ripening to a bright white.
Overall, a spectacular chilli that grows really well and looks stunning with the gnarly white pods. It tastes amazing and the heat is excellent! It is one of the many colours of Bhut Jolokia – the former record holder.
Flavour: Sweet Bhut flavour, although it is on the bitter side.
Heat: Extreme heat

Yet to try them as they are still whitening / ripening. Interesting experience to share though. My plant is great and looks like being a super producer, throwing out lots of pods. However rather than starting out green they all start purple then gradually change to a milky white. Great looking plant, can’t wait to try the pods.
