Naga Jolokia+Bhut Jolokia?

The internet is full of great info, only how do you know what is true and what is not? Several pepper seed sites say that the bhuts and the naga's are the same. I bought seed of both varieties, and both produced similar looking fruit. From the photos I have seen on this forum it appears both are nagas and not bhuts. Wondering then where to get authentic seed. Which seed companies do you use?

I get my bhut seeds from the New Mexico State University Chile Pepper Institute.

While I did have a mix up with seeds this year, the bad seeds came from amazon or ebay (don't remember which), while the NMSU bhuts were perfect.

I got mine at the link provided, my first year I actually bought seedling that were shipped via USPS they are the same rough skin Bhut's as NMSU sell's. The next year I grew from seeds I saved and had 90% germination. I do have a few seeds if you would like. Let me know.

habjalokia, thank you that is a very kind offer. I haven't updated my trade list in quite a while although I do have lots to offer. Is there anything you are specifically looking for?
