Scoville Heat Units (SHU):
855,000 - 1,041,427

The Ghost pepper emerged as a record setting pepper when it burst onto the scene in 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 a powerful endorphin rush. From 2007 to 2012, Guinness World Records certified that the 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.

    Pleased with new wholesale program

    Posted by 12 Acres of Peppers on 8th May 2018

    I grow larger volumes of peppers for my agricultural business and use the wholesale program that these guys recently started. 25% off of prices that are already cheap is a very nice gesture to help us big time growers. If you are a wholesale buyer, you should take advantage of their big discount using the coupon code.

    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!
