Brown Butlah Chili Seeds
Information: The Brown or Chocolate Bhutlah is a strain of chili pepper, made by an unintentional cross-pollination between the Trinidad Douglah (also known as the 7 pot/pod douglah or 7 pod brown) and Bhut Jolokia (ghost pepper). It caused somehow a sensation in the chili pepper community, as its extraordinary heat could surpass the current world record holder Carolina Reaper. Many chili reviewers have said that it is hotter than the Carolina Reaper, but it is not officially confirmed yet.
The plants grow bushy and are very productive and robust. The fruits have a floral taste and an intense heat.
Care: Germination temperature is between 24°C and 30°C (germination period: 10-20 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plant inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. To keep the plant over the winter, cut it back by 20cm after harvesting and place in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
