A very unusual, beautiful cross between two super hot varieties. The Maldavian Heart is a Habanero variety. The Purple Bhut is a purple strain of Ghost Pepper. The plant grows to a height of 1m. Foliage and stems are dark green-purple. Pods change colour from purple to purple-green then to orange-purple and finally mature to red, sometimes with light purple blushes. The flavour is fruity, citrus and slightly floral. Very productive.

The Scoville heat unit for this variety is : 650 000 to 750 000 SHU

Important to Note.

Chilli peppers can be tricky to germinate and especially so with the rarer super hot varieties patience is needed as they can take up to 40 days to germinate in ideal conditions. We also recommend that a heat pad is used when germinating chillies of the Capsicum chinense species. All of our chillis are grown in isolation to avoid cross pollination. As chillis are rampant cross pollinators it is not uncommon for variances to appear in the fruit as chillis can cross pollinate with fruit from plants a few houses or kilometres away. The only way to ensure with 100% certainty that cross pollination does not occur is to use pollination bags on each flower when the plant starts to bud and before the flowers open.
