GHOST PEPPER Bhut jolokia
The Bhut jolokia, also known as ghost pepper, ghost chili pepper, or ghost chili is a hybrid of Capsicum chinense and Capsicum frutescens. In 2007, Guinness World Records certified that the ghost pepper was the world's hottest chili pepper, 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. The ghost chili is rated at more than 1 million Scoville Heat Units (SHUs).
The peppers grow to about 3" long. Start the seeds early in the season as they require about 3-4 weeks to germinate. Grow in full sun, and a warm location.
Note: All parts of the pepper plant can be poisonous to pets.
Seeds per pack: 20
Germination: These plants should be fairly easy to germinate! Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and flatten the surface. Keep moist and warm until germination, which can take about 3-4 weeks. Once seedlings emerge, place the pot in a sunny place, or under bright grow lights. Pepper seeds require an early indoor sowing, especially if you live in a cool climate.
