Ghost Chili Pepper
Certified Hottest Chile Pepper In The World
(Capscium chinense) (AKA Bhut Jolokia) Certified in 2007 as the hottest chile pepper in the world by Guinness Book of Word Records at over 1 million Scoville units. Ghost Chili originiated in Assam, India. The word Bhut, given from the Bhutias people, means “ghost” and was probably given the name because of the way the heat sneaks up on you when you eat the fruit. Handle the seeds and fruits with extreme caution. It will act as a perennial if you wish to overwinter them. Fruit set the second year can be tremendous under ideal conditions. Ghost Pepper is still considered the “hottest chile in the world” as it delivers consistent high Scovville units. 100 days from transplant.
