Hi, I was wondering if any of you have been growing Naga Yellow from Drax in Italy? He has taken down his website and is no longer active, but here is the information he once posted
My Yellow Naga. You will not find around this pepper, you will never find a pepper with a taste, a smell and a crunchiness like this. It is unique, it is my selection of Naga that I have been cultivating in my field for many years. Its uniqueness will remain so, secret. Excellent also from dry for the preparation of exceptional and fragrant spicy oils. I consider the seeds for your season as seeds for F3 generation plants. It may change due to the young age of the cross.
I only grew one plant last season, and fall in love! Here are some pictures, and text I posted on my Instagram page:
Italy seems to be a hotspot when it comes to new chili hybrids! There are so many great growers and breeders there, and @draxpeppers is one of them.
These Yellow Naga´s have been a favorite all season, and I can’t recommend them enough!
I'm not really sure if this is a pure Naga, or some type of cross. The flavor and aroma are very Naga ish, but everything else is different from all the other Naga / Bhut Jolokia varieties I have grown and tasted.
The fruits are big and thick-walled. Crunchy and juicy. The heat is really low for a Naga! A very pleasant low habanero burn that everybody can enjoy.
The taste is absolutely phenomenal! It has that Bhut Jolokia funky smell and taste that's hard to describe. Like most yellow chilies there are some citrusy notes here, but it's a really clean and delicate flavor without any sourness or bitterness. This one goes very well with just about anything. The low heat profile also makes this an incredibly useful chili in the kitchen.
The plant is a heavy producer here in my climate, but still, the fruits could have been a lot bigger if I had a better season.
The icing on the cake is this beautiful color! The pictures don’t give it justice.
I want to overwinter this plant, and probably start up some seeds for next season! A top 10 favorite amongst the 100+ varieties we grew this season ❤
