This variety is a cross between Bhut Jolokia and Pimenta de Neyde. Many growers are still trying to stabilise it so you will get many variations if you grow it, the possibilities are a dark purple almost black pepper, some have streaks or red interlaced with dark purple, peppers ripening to dark red is also possible. The darkest peppers on the plants appear to have the sweetest flavour. An interesting variety to grow but do not expect consistency. The Black Bhut Jolokia or Bhut Neyde cross grows to over 4ft tall, the fragile plants will require staking. Heat level very hot.
