The Ghost pepper emerged as a record setting pepper when it burst onto the scene is 2007, rating at just over 1,000,000 Scoville Heat Units. Although the Ghost pepper is no longer the hottest pepper in the world, it’s still as popular as ever. The name Ghost pepper simply comes from the pepper’s official Indian name, the Bhut Jolokia. Bhut in Indian means “ghost”.
The Ghost pepper, which is wrinkly and pointy, has a very fruity flavor that kicks in almost immediately after consumption. The extreme heat builds up for several minutes and eventually creates an endorphin rush. Due to its extreme heat level, the Ghost pepper should be used sparingly in hot sauces or stews, to increase the spice and enhance flavor.

I ordered several different varieties from Tyler Farms and they've all grown true. I'd highly recommend them for the wide selection of seeds as well as low prices. Great stuff!
