Ghost Pepper / Bhut Jolokia is one of the hottest peppers in the world with 350,000-1,000,000 Scoville units. The peppers are 2 1/2 – 3″ long and are green ripening to red. They have a long, narrow shape and a complex taste. The plants are very slow growing when young, start them earlier than other hot peppers. 100-120 days.
Capsicum annuum unless otherwise noted.
4,000 seeds/oz.; 21-26 days, 72°F.
Start early indoors and transplant well after last frost. Grow seedlings at 62°F night temperature and 70°F day temperature. Lower temperatures permanently reduce plant productivity.
Scovilles are a measure of heat.
