Arguable the most unique Ghost pepper variety because of its color, the Gold Ghost pepper is a new member of the Ghost pepper family. The pods start off green and ripen to a stunning gold color. It has a fruity flavor and a very spicy heat level which is typical for superhot peppers. 

The Gold 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 a powerful endorphin rush. From 2007 to 2012, Guinness World Records certified that the original Ghost pepper was the world's hottest pepper. Eventually the Ghost pepper was overtaken by the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T pepper and the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion as the world’s hottest pepper. In 2013, both of those peppers were taken over by the Carolina Reaper.

Some of the most popular hot sauces in the world feature the Ghost pepper as the main hot pepper ingredient. The recent surge in spicy food and beverage items often cite Ghost pepper as a main ingredient, such as Ghost pepper burgersGhost pepper chips, and craft beers that are brewed with Ghost peppers.

There are several different colored strains of the Ghost pepper, including the Red Ghost pepperWhite Ghost pepperPeach Ghost pepperChocolate Ghost pepper, and Yellow Ghost pepper. The Ghost pepper is related to the Naga ViperDorset Naga,  Naga Morich,  Chocolate Bhutlah, and Jay’s Peach Ghost Scorpion.

    Second season buying from Tyler Farms. First time around produced excellent results. This year I bought a bunch of seeds and these gold ghosts were one of them. The seeds sprouted quickly and all looked very fresh upon arrival. They threw in extra seeds too. :)
