The Carbonero Creme is a four (possible five) way cross. It is a cross between a White Jolokia and an Orange Carbonero. The Carbonero itself is a three way cross created by Tony Sherwood, between Indian Carbon Bhut, Yellow 7-Pot and Orange Habanero. I’m not sure if the White Jolokia itself is a cross, but from pics I’ve seen, it is the smooth White Bhut similar to the strain pepperlover sells. The plant is very short, but super productive.

The pod has a base sweetness, with little to no bitterness. There is some slight bitterness in the seeds and placenta, but not much. The heat is a little less than habanero give or take. Flavor is excellent. I look forward to trying it in different applications.
