Peach Bhut Jolokia is a very hot and wrinkly chile that some might call “Peach Ghost Pepper.” I don’t know where the “Ghost Pepper” thing got started, but the name of these lines is Bhut Jolokia or even bhût zôlôkia. Anyway, this is a beautiful creamy peach chile that woos you with the color into thinking you are going to eat something like a Creamsicle. This impression does not last beyond the first pass of very hot oil across your eager tongue. Some tasters have perceived a fruitiness. My tender mouth perceives heat. It is a great little chile, and very prolific on a plant that didn’t get taller than 4 feet in my garden. This peach version is said to be a “natural variant” of the red Bhut Jolokia. I am not sure if that means a bee cross, a segregate from the original hybrid line as it was grown to stability, or a somatic mutation. Peach Bhut Jolokia does seem to be a stable line now, and the ones I grew look like those I have seen other vendors selling. Note: I have listed this as a C. chinense; however, the parents of the original hybrid were C. chinense and C. frutescens…so I am unsure as to which this should be called.
