Want a ghost pepper, but with more sweetness to it? The Umorok Red is the perfect super-hot pepper for you! The Umorok Red pepper is a ghost pepper type from Manipur, India, and is an extremely flavorful, fiery hot pepper. The locals call this type of pepper King Chili for its extreme hot taste, and boy is it hot! As you cut the pod open, you will notice a lot of oil residing inside the pepper. When you take a bite, you’ll notice loaded sweetness with slight floral tones and not a lot of bitterness. That’s before the heat kicks you.
The Umorok pepper plant is a high yielder but be aware that it will produce a ton of peppers! The plant grows over 4 feet tall and grows peppers with wrinkly, scary-looking skin with curved, hook-like tails. The red Umorok chili ripens from light green, yellow, to finally a bright red color. If you’re curious to try more super-hot peppers or want to shy away from ghost peppers, you won’t be disappointed growing the Umorok Red peppers.
