Yorkshire Barghest – new variety we are helping with

So last year Dennis Hughs grew the first generation of his new cross, Yorkshire Barghest with good results. The cross is Bhut Orange Copenhagen x Trindidad Scorpion CARDI, so a fine pedigree with two classic varieties as parent strains.

The F1 pods were a big hit, deepest blood orange colour when fully ripe, great flavour, huge pods and wickedly hot (estimate lower end super hot based by the Stella consumed by Gary Anson during the taste test!). The plant was extremely productive too.

We are growing the F2 seeds this year for him and are really looking forward to how they turn out.
