The original Lava pepper was created by Judy from pepperlover.com. The seed for this variant came from Red Lava seeds that Jack Chap grew out, which is where the name comes from.

Pod review of Jack’s Yellow Lava. Michael Christensen grew this pod and sent to me. The pod weighed a little under 10 grams. I thought the flavor wasn’t bad at all, mostly fruity and citrusy. It had a good aroma too. The heat wasn’t superhot level, I’d say twice habanero level at most.
This pod was sent to me by Michael Christensen. It was extremely hot for a yellow pod. I detected three flavors before the heat slammed me. There was an initial sweetness, then a flavor I can’t identify, after that came some citrus. The pain started in my mouth, then moved back of my throat and stayed there for several minutes.

I don’t any info on its origin, except that it was created by Wes Lane. There is also a red version.
