It's a great superhot. It's a skunk red (7-Pot SR x MA Wartryx) backcrossed to MA Wartryx. There are red and chocolate variants, but I've never seen the red one in the flesh. Added bonus: it ripens pretty early for a superhot.
I’m a believer in chocolate peppers. I grew a chocolate Scotch bonnet this year and do indeed find that it has a smokier, more complex flavour to the common reds.
