The Yaki Blue is a cross between a Bhut Jolokia and a Filius Blue.
The plant grows to one meter in both height and width, and has purple stems and dark green leaves.
The pods start off a dark purple, almost black, and then they change to a burgundy colour. The final colour is a dark red with a blackish tinge.
This hot pepper would be a great choice for creating your own hot sauce, a chilli salt or powder. If you want to use it for cooking, you will have to be careful as the heat level is really hot.
Growing tip: Shade is what this variety likes, so don’t give it full sun all day.
Pod size: Golf ball size.
Flavour: The recognizable Chinense flavour with floral tones.
Heat wise: Hot
