(Ghost pepper) One of the world´s hottest! By the Scoville system this pepper is rated at over one million Scoville heat units. That´s 400 times hotter than Tobasco sauce! Back in 2007 this was the world´s hottest pepper according to Guinness World Records. Native to northeastern India, bhut jolokia is a hybrid of C. chinense and C. frutescens. Brilliant red when mature. Seeds require warm soil to germinate, and peppers do best in light, well-drained soil in areas where there is a long hot growing season to allow them to come to their fiery best. Wear protective gloves to harvest ripe fruit. Heat: 1,500,000 Scoville units.
