The White Ghost pepper is the white version of the world famous Red Ghost pepper, which 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.” This is the white variety.

The White Ghost pepper, which is creamy white 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.

    Happy with my first order from Tyler front. There are so many fake seed companies out there and I definitely did my research before buying. I was referred to Tyler Farms by a friend and glad I found them. They are the real deal.

    Started seeds inside house, let them get to be 8" tall, then transplanted outside. Today, they are two feet high and thriving! Won't be long before I have beautiful white ghosts. Burn, baby, burn.
