This is an unknown cross discovered by Justin White. It is very Bhut like but probably crossed with something else.

Notes

Amount eaten: whole pod
Heat: 5
Flavor: 8
Burn Profile:
Effects: none
Cap Cramps: none

Review

This has a distinct Bhut Jolokia flavor, but tastes better, in my opinion. It’s like Bhut mixed with sweet and fruity, almost along the lines of the Bih Jolokia x Sugar Rush Peach, but more Bhut like. The heat is a little less than typical Bhut.

This had a little bit of floral and bitterness while chewing, turning slightly sweet.  Had harsh hiccups up front, not much salivation, mostly dry mouth. Had searing hot coal type back of the throat, then moving forward. I had no cap cramps or other stomach issues from it.

I tried this on a live stream. The flavor was very nice, slightly sweet, tangy, not much floral or bitterness at all. The inside was very oily, not many seeds. A minute or so after swallowing had involuntary throat contractions for a while, and tears. Was hard to speak. It was intensely hot.

KhangSta Red f4

Capsicum chinense

Background

This is a cross by Khang Starr of MOA Scotch Bonnet and Brazilian Ghost. The seeds for it came from Khang Starr. This cross is still unstable, there are several different phenos being produced at this stage.

Notes

I grew this in a five-gallon bucket using Dyna-Gro 7-9-5.

Amount eaten: 1/4 pod
Weight: 15.7 grams
Size: 2.25 in x 1.25 in
Heat: 5
Flavor:6
Burn Profile: Glow mostly toward the back of the mouth, some creeper
Effects:  Salivation, hiccups
Cap Cramps:  None.

Review

This was a heavy pod with thick walls, not much placental lining, but did have a membrane that traversed the entire pod. The pod contained several droplets of capsicum oil when cut open. The flavor was mild, slightly sweet, slightly floral, a little bitter finish. The heat came on fairly soon after swallowing, but a piece I tried from another pod off the same plant had more of a creeper effect. The heat was like a nice back of the mouth glow that went a little to the back of the throat but didn’t stay there long. The heat level was between habanero and ghost, but closer to the habanero range.
