Is the Chocolate Bhutlah the NEW World’s Hottest?
As of right now the Chocolate Bhutlah is gaining steam and blowing heads off with it’s extreme heat. Although not official, the Chocolate Bhutlah is in the running for The World’s Hottest Pepper. Who knows, it may blow the Carolina Reaper out of the water.
The Chocolate Bhutlah is a unique cross between a Bhut Jolokia and a Chocolate Douglah hence the clever name mashup of bhut-lah.
Bhutlah Seeds are now available for purchase!
UPDATE: Live Chocolate Bhutlah Plants are now available!
I invite you to grow your own Bhutlah Plants and see for yourself if it is hotter than the Carolina Reaper.

I'm excited to start growing
Customer service from PepperHead is very good, and emails are responded to promptly, and personally. Tracking numbers were emailed, and seeds were delivered in a week. Some other sites send directions for planting/germinating but PepperHead does not. I did a lot of research before I bought seeds, and had heating pads, a large H.O fluorescent light fixture, and brand new, unopened plastic domes with Jiffy Pellets to start with. I also used distilled water that had been boiled and cooled down to sterilize it. I washed my hands, wore gloves, and transferred the seeds into Jiffy Pellets with tweezers that had been boiled too. I used a handheld laser-probe to measure temperature, and kept it in the 80*-85* F degree range. I attempted to create the most ideal conditions or my seeds, but still had little success.
After recently moving, I was very excited to get these seeds and start them, in hopes of bringing some to my dad. He shares the love of hot peppers with me, and this is a hobby that we can both share, despite the distance between us. I start seeds for him, and bring him plants when I come to visit, and he calls me, very excited when he starts getting peppers on his plants! I was slightly disappointed that only one Carolina Reaper sprouted, and that it wasn't very healthy, and didn't make it. Maybe something happened to the seeds in the mail ? Hot peppers mean a lot to my dad because he has very few hobbies, with my mother being in poor health. Luckily, PepperHead offers live plants, and I think that I may have to wind up ordering some to ensure that I/we have a good selection of peppers this year to share and trade with friends and co-workers. I cannot allow my dad's reputation at work as the pepper-guy to become tarnished !
I gave a rating of 3 stars for the large selection, 2 free seed packs, and prompt email. I was not able to give 5 stars at this time, because of my poor results, and lack of directions. My former chef ordered from here in the past and directed me here. I will try the rest of my seeds at a later date and see if I have better success. If so, I will order more seeds in the future.
