From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection R7--Release #7 on September 3, 2015. This is an intensely hot Capsicum chinense pepper originating from Peter Merle in the Canary Islands. This phenotype originally showed up from a Bhutlah Red SLP plant in Christopher's garden and immediately caught his eye. While not black in color per se, the pods are much darker when ripe than the standard Bhutlah Brown SLP so Peter decided to name the phenotype Black Bhutlah SLP to differentiate it. The variety is still in the early stages (F3 seed being sold) so pod shape / color variations could occur. The peppers are extremely pimpled and the interior walls are just completely lined in capsaicin! We do not have an exact heat level on this one yet, but after one bite, we knew it was in the Stupit Hot category!!
