Our SEED CATALOG contains these seeds.
Aji Yellow [HS:1,000 d)
Anaheim (life sized) (HS:25 f)
Ancho Mexican Large (life sized) (HS:22 f)
Barker, roasting pepper [HS:580 f]
Bhut Jolokia Smooth fruit [HS:60,000 d]
A Kentucky greenhouse hydoponic pepper growing family sent us pictures of their fresh Bhut harvests: When planted in 5 gallon pine bark bags with calcium nitrate added to the nutrient solution, plants grew by the end of the year to 3 feet across and 6 feet tall, producing 1,000 peppers on each plant. The weight of the fruit was treatening to break off branches. Photos copyright © 2010 by Gerald Locker, used with permission.
Those peppers sold for retail for $3 each and wholesale for 50 cents each, making the Bhut one of the most valuable legal agricultural products you can grow, and at 100 fruit per pound, the value was from $50-300 per pound, yielding $500-$3,000 per plant. Until growers start producing acres of this pepper, the production from 1,000 plants could buy you a nice home.
There are several strains of seed of the Bhut Jolokia from many other sources, with a very wide range in their heat levels, and we measured the fresh fruit from 7,143 to 25,000 and the heat level for the dried fruit can be as high as HS: 35,000.
