The Red Ghost Pepper, AKA the Bhut Jolokia chili, is an heirloom variety coming from India that was at one point the hottest pepper in the world! The hot Ghost Pepper chili took the crown in 2007, and held the record for 4 years! 

This is the hottest commercially grown pepper in the world! Our seeds have been field-tested for years and are sheer perfection. Grow these plants in your garden and watch the stretch up to 4 ft. tall, with some growing even taller! These 3" pods even look menacing - with a wrinkly texture and conical shape, these pepper mature from a sweet and innocent green to a fiery hot red.

Most ghost peppers run around the 900,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Unit) mark, but they have been recorded at over 1,000,000 SHUs! As one of the spiciet peppers in the world, the Indian Army once weaponized these to make chili hand grenades (what?!). The fruity and berry-like flavors from the Ghost make these impeccable additions to hot sauce and salsa, as well as a great chili powder when dried. We only recommend eating this pepper for brave, steel-gutted pepper heads - just ask our team members!
