Bhut Jolokia or Ghost Pepper

100-120 days from transplant—Also known as Ghost Pepper, Naga Morich. Legendary variety, one of the world's hottest peppers, if not the hottest, with readings in excess of 1,000,000 Scoville units! Bhut Jolokia starts out slow but eventually makes tall plants, exceeding 4 ft in favored locations. The thin-walled, wrinkled, pointed fruits reach 2-3" in length, ripening mostly to red.

What are the pros? High Germination, Great Yield

What are the cons? None to speak of!

Review:

I had 90% germination rate using my Aerogarden Seed Starter (9/10 sprouted within 8 days) and were 2"-3" within another 10 days. Transplanted to peat pots and hardened for about 3 weeks before transplanting transplanting to garden. Planted these about 24" apart with small tomato cages to help support them as they grew. All are now 3.5' - 4' tall and each has 24-30 peppers on them. I use General Hydroponics FloraMicro 10-10-10 fertilizer and once I saw flowers I used a spray of epsom salt with water (1 TBSP to 4 cup) every two weeks. Like all super hots, they take forever to mature, but they are worth the wait! I would recommend these to anyone and LOVE Baker Creek Seeds!

What are the pros? peach peppers

What are the cons? peach peppers

Review:

I found that the seeds germinated quickly with a heat mat that kept the trays at around 75-80 F in the winter (wouldn't say it is the hardest pepper seed to sprout--that would be a pequin chile). I had one plant that seemed to prefer growing in a pot under my porch awning that is now about 2' x 2' tall. It has sprouted many peppers but they are peach! I have found that peach jolokia's exist but it was a bit of a shock. Haven't tried them yet, but they smell spicy and look completely benign. I left the peppers on past their prime waiting for them to turn red. Has anybody else had peach peppers from this company? It is an interesting variant; however was expecting red peppers. My plants that are in my boxes are not doing as well, as they have less shade (it has been over 100 F here for the past two weeks with no break in sight) and are about six inches tall. I suspect that they will have massive growth in the fall when things calm down here. I wonder if they will produce peach?

Review:

As with any super hot pepper seed, you need to germinate with temps between 70-80 degrees f. I used a old heating pad, but you can buy fancy mats from any nursery or grow shop in your area. With that said, every seed and variety that I started from Baker Creek this year had excellent germination rates. The Bhut Jolokia is an outstanding producer, very unique flavor and good heat as far as super hots go. There are many hotter, but not many more that have the ghost heat that allows you to taste the flavor before the intense heat builds up. If you are new to super hot peppers and want to start growing them, this is a great one to start with. Plants in the right condition grow very large, mine are around 6 feet and really put on the fruit. A must pepper for the super hot novice.

Review:

as a lot of the other reviews have stated these are slow growers. started the seeds under indoor grow light.... had almost given up on and finally 3 sprouted. I have put them in the garden and its a small plant but very full and good looking. summer will be here soon and hopefully it will take off!
