“Pandora’s Box Mix”
1-2 seeds of virtually every phenotype/selection from Pimenta Jolokia (PJ), found at Towns-End; mixed in 1 package.
Bhut x P.D.N. Around 2015 I started growing out a Peach/Pink Bhut Jolokia x Pimenta De Neyde. Obviously an early generation. I received them from Jes Christensen. Jes got them from Enrico Lai. I later traced the Peach/Pink of Enrico's to Christopher Phillips, Chris Fowler, Grant Hustler, "Pepper Italia", & AISPES. I started calling them what others were logging variations as & I thought Enrico named them, "Pimenta Jolokia". I also really like the name as a marriage of the two parents that created it. They came from a Peach/Pink variation, but when I planted them: all ripened Red. Not to be Discouraged, I planted a bunch from the different reds and a new peach returned. Many other colors & variations came from those different red variations, including a dark burnt orange in 2016. In 2018 they showed super dark variations with sucked in tails also. It's very cool that they are all pretty constant with ripe blushing and darkness in the foliage. Expect many different variations/Phenotypes. Originally Paolo Fisicaro made the cross in 2009 between Bhut Jolokia and Pimenta De Neyde. It was to be called Pimenta Elisa under an Italian non-profit organization AISPES. It was shared abroad to some enthusiasts with attached guidelines. If the guidelines like isolation were not met, it would be cataloged as "Bhut x Neyde Fn" . The problem was that information did not get passed on, and with every color shift; someone created a new name. AISPES did choose to name a few more phenotypes that I know of. "Pimenta Tiger" , "Pimenta Leopard" & "Pimenta Gobbo". After so many variations appeared, many tried to shorten up the name. This information was not easy to track down. All Bhut x PDN do come from 1 cross. This is the most beautiful and productive set of "Bhut x Neyde" genetics I have come across. Some of these variations wouldn’t exist if not for Towns-End releasing them. Unfortunately people are still renaming many variations from this grow out and others. Many PJ’s have matched other Bhut x PDN that have been named over the years, and some got directly renamed from Pimenta Jolokia.
