Yaki Blue Fawn Pepper
Capsicum chinense x annuum
Here is the Yaki Blue Fawn Pepper, Capsicum chinense X Annuum, Scoville units: 150,000 ~ 600,000 SHU. It is a cross between Bhut Jolokia and Filius Blue cultivars. A fairly rare variety with an unclear origin. Yaki Blue Fawn bears long, 2 1/2 inch wrinkled fruits that ripen to a blue-purple hue with a tinge of deep orange when fully ripe. The fruits are similar to the Habanero variety, but reportedly shows more heat and may be marginally larger in size. Whatever its history, the variety bears highly desirable fruits, with intense heat and an interesting citrus-like flavor. Plants get to 5 feet tall and are good producers. Care should be taken when handling pods as they are extremely hot. Open pollinated 87 days.
