The Chocolate Ghost Pepper is believed to be a variant of the Red Ghost Pepper that stemmed from crossing with a 7 Pot Douglah. That lineage creates this fabulous pepper which can actually have pods HOTTER than the Ghost Pepper, with a taste all of its own. Although the Chocolate Ghost chili has never officially been tested for Scoville Heat Units, most estimates are in the 800,000 to 1,001,304 range. This is a fun Chile to grow and add to your collection.

The Chocolate Ghost pepper plant will grow to about 4 feet tall, producing 3" long pods that ripen from green to their dark brown color at maturity. Wrinkly and pointy, this is a gnarly pepper not to be messed with! The Chocolate Bhut Jolokia is one of the most unique Super Hot Peppers to grow in your garden with its colors and flavors. Wrinkly and pointy, this is a gnarly pepper not to be messed with!

Their flavors are uniquely unforgettable as their rich dark color seems to add sweeter undertones with the smoky flavor you always get from a Ghost. Use this for BBQ sauces, hot sauces, powder, and marinades.

Getting Started

Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
