One of the hottest peppers in the world, the Ghost Pepper (aka the Bhut Jolokia) comes in many different varieties - redyellowchocolatewhite - but our orange variety is a stellar option that brings a unique flare to your garden landscape while providing all of the best Ghost pepper qualities.

The Orange Ghost pepper plant will grow to about 3 feet (possibly will grow larger if planted on the ground) and produce many of these 3" long fiery devils. These peppers, known as the hottest commercially grown variety in the world, have the signature Ghost pepper shape - conical, pendant-like, tapering to a point - and have smooth, shiny skin, almost identical to elongated Habanero peppers (but much hotter). You'll see these peppers ripen from green to orange, and then to red.

The Orange Bhut Jolokia pepper’s heat is around 900,000 – 1,000,000 SHUs with a great citrusy, Naga flavor and is the most prolific out of all the ghost peppers. Be warned - the Orange Ghost pepper is EXTREMELY hot as it builds up after the first bite (the word "bhut" means ghost, hinting that the heat will creep up on you like a ghost). Nevertheless, this pepper is great for making hot sauce, jams, and powder. We've heard you can even brew Ghost peppers to your craft beers!

  • 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.
