Green pepper Bhut Jolokia
Started Feb 22nd. Photo taken May 8th. Grown in self-watering 7" pot under lights. Bhut is 13" tall
Bhut Jolokia flowered for several weeks before setting fruit but has been quite prolific once started
Bhut Jolokia has blue anthers but the color is on mine difficult to discern. Average of 3 fruit per node but it varies from 2 to 5
Bhut Jolokias are as hot as they say....
Started Feb 22. Set out in 15 gallon grow bag end of May. First ripe mid Aug. Yield: over 125 peppers on one plant
End of harvest (note how some are still orange) One Bhut Jolokia in a 15 gallon grow bag yielded over 150 peppers
