Description:

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 Ghost pepper 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 spiciest 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! Grab a packet of Ghost pepper seeds today!

Hot pepper seeds

I purchased 3 different hot pepper seeds thos year from Pepper Joes and the same from another well known seed company. Pepper Joes sprouted first and the plants looks stronger than those from the other company!

  • 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.
