One of the world's hottest peppers, the Yellow Ghost Pepper - AKA the Yellow Bhut Jolokia - is a beautiful variety that comes with an amazing flavor and crazy-hot nuclear heat that you'll need to prepare yourself for! A mutant of the original Ghost Pepper, this variety is guaranteed to light up your garden and your next meal!

Grow these peppers on 4 ft. tall pepper plants that produce incredible yields of these slender-looking peppers. The Yellow Ghost chiles look wrinkly and pointy, changing colors from green to bright yellow as they mature. Expect these pods to grow about 4" long and fill up your pepper plant as they come in.

This super hot pepper has heat levels between 855,000-1,000,000 SHUs - that's about 125 times hotter than a Jalapeno pepper! If you can handle the heat, you'll be able to enjoy delectable fruity flavors that come with every bite you take. Yellow Bhut chili peppers make for an amazing hot sauce and will also be good fresh and added to many meals. Grow these next to your other ornamental pepper plants for a nice display of colorful varieties!

  • 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.
