Bhut Jolokia Potted Plant Project 2007.
From left to right Gamma, Beta and Alpha.





Six Bhut Jolokia chile pepper plants designated as deta, epsilon, zeta, eta, theta and iota. Jurassic in size with a tremendous final fruit set. Very laborous to pick and count. Original seeds arrived at our residence 01/11/07 in minuscule count. These were purchased from the New Mexico Chile Pepper Institute. According to Professor Paul Bosland director, they are the only source of pure Bhut Jolokia seed that has a higher pollen viability. With this botanical rarity a large harvest resulted.




These Asian chile plants were an eyeful thriving in the metro east located in Belleville, Illinois USA. They were grown in a private one hundred square foot plot; in the midst of a neighborhood community garden, unbeknownst to the general public and one other undisclosed isolated habitat. The garden plants eventually reached a height of six and one half feet with 182.25 square feet of foilage. 09/17/07




This corner close up photo shows the hanging fruit that completely surrounds the lower bottom of these plants. Take special note of the number of stakes and rope that support their weight.




This underneath view of garden Bhut reveals the shear numbers of fruit otherwise blanketed by foilage.



Bhut Jolokia Chile Pepper Potted Plant Named Alpha
Alpha Bhut was transplanted from a twelve inch pot to its nineteen inch resting container. This planter pot is probably the smallest one you should use to maintain high yields. Unique to Alpha Bhut was its mobility due to its wheels and stake support system. In mid September 2007 till the end of the month 336 fully red ripe and mature Bhut fruit were harvested. Once the first harvest was removed Alpha set another four hundred pods. These pods were not removed until two consecutive frosts followed. Both beta and gamma in article one photo had large second fruit sets as well.

Bhut Jolokia chile pepper plant named Beta.
Beta Bhut was transplanted from a twelve inch pot, to its twenty four gallon resting container.
This planter pot is ideal to use for exceptional high yields. In mid September 2007 till the end of the month, four hundred fifty seven (457) fully red, ripe and mature Bhut fruit were harvested.
