The Red Bhutlah was created by crossing the world famous Chocolate Bhutlah and the Red 7 Pot. Although the Red Bhutlah is not quite as hot as the Chocolate Bhutlah, it does have a sweeter, more tropical flavor to it. At one time many thought that the Chocolate Bhutlah pepper would replace the Carolina Reaper as the hottest pepper in the world, but no official testing has been conducted. Its cousin, the Ghost (Bhut Jolokia) pepper, has a similar flavor but is not as spicy.
Like other superhot varieties, the Red Bhutlah has a fruity flavor and an extremely spicy kick to it. The Red Bhutlah should be used sparingly as just a small piece of this pepper can provide enough heat for an entire dish. The Red Bhutlah is about as hot as the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, which averages over 1,500,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).
