I’m growing a bunch of bhut jolokias this year that I’m excited about and the peach bhut jolokia is definitely one of them. I can’t remember where I got the seeds (if it was you please post in the comments!) but I started the season with two plants. Despite a late start the plants were both some of the fastest growers I have. After they got started though that changed…one plant continued to grow pretty fast and already has a about 15 pods. The other plant, which is planted right next to it, is about 1/2 the size and only has a few flowers, no pods yet.
The peach bhut plant with the pods is one of my best plants so far. If the pods turn out like they are supposed to (nice bhut flavor with solid heat and plants that throw off a ton of pods) this one will included in future gardens for sure. Here’s how my peach bhuts looked about a week ago. More pics when I start to see some ripening.
Here’s a great video review of the peach bhut jolokia. I really hope the ones I’m growing are like the ones described in the video: “Really nice flavor overall. Heat was great. Not a bring you to your knees heat, but enough to get your blood pumping. Mostly in the tongue with just a tiny bit of burn in the throat. This chile makes it on to my top 10 best tasting list easily. I would say even top 3. I have had better tasting mild chile, but for a Superhot this takes the cake! ”
