Guess that pepper

homefry319(5b NE)August 24, 2012

any ideas?

I finally got annoyed enough to ask, they are spouse to be bhuts but def way smaller and lighter colored(thats a quarter in the photo)

the heat scale actually varies Ive tried 3 and I say its anywhere from hab to just under a bhut, its def a tip of the tongue and throat burn

that being said, its irrelevant where i got them etc Im over that if you really want to know pm me

If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say naga morich. They tend to have the same general shape as the bhut, the same pleats, but with smoother skin and smaller pods. Their heat level is also about where you said, well north of a hab but a little south of a bhut.

Still a good superhot/nuclear, and I've seen many places listing morichs as ghost peppers. Enough to where these days I just assume anyone selling "ghost pepper" seeds is actually selling naga morichs unless they specify that its a bhut jolokia.

they were listed as bhut, but thats besides the point(can you tell Im still pissed haha).....

Ive been trying to google to see if I can find any that would be similar but it seems it just returned mixed results

most the naga morich pictures Ive seen they've been way "fatter" and don't wrinkle in as much

Yeah. I don't know what it is. Probably a hybrid.

Maybe Bombay morichs?
