100-120 days from transplant—Also known as Ghost Pepper, Naga Morich. Legendary variety, one of the world's hottest peppers, 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? Aromatic flesh, abundant pods

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've grown these once before, so I knew I would need to support them. These are abundant with pods, so they will weigh down the branches. The branches all fork off really low on the plant, so once the plants are getting fully loaded, the branches will start breaking off from the main stalk due to wind and weight once they are loaded and ripening. I was ready for this. This variety has produced heavily for me. I now grow these in two short rows really close together and just place four stakes around the block of plants. I then run baling twine around the stakes to hold up the outer branches. I've started planting all of my peppers in blocks like this and they pollinate and produce like crazy. For plants that don't bush as wide, I do 3 or 4 rows staggered really close. I only nibbled a tiny piece of the flesh and it was more than I could handle. Great flavor and aroma, but I swear I heard my lips sizzling. It does have a lasting, euphoric effect when eating peppers this hot.

Review:

I just ate my first Bhut Jolokia. I ate a whole Bhut jolokia pepper diced up on a quesadilla, with sour cream and guacamole on the side. My face is sweating, my eyes are watering. My mouth is full of drool. It was good. Highly recommended... I will be making hot sauce from these.

What are the pros? extreme experience

What are the cons? none

Review:

Good God… I grew up eating chile and I adore it; much hotter than most can tolerate. These things, while underneath being quite delicious, are indefensibly, possibly dangerously, hot… That said, they're pretty and grew quite well and easily in zone 11b/13. I ended up dehydrating and powdering all but a couple. Like 1/8th of a teaspoon will make an entire, multiple-serving dish too hot for most folks. A full teaspoon surpasses “Thai hot.” It was fun—well, edifying anyway—to find out what North of 1M Scovilles tastes like. :P

What are the pros? Good price, easy to grow

What are the cons? A lot of care

Review:

I bought a packet and used the baggy method to get them to germinate. All sprouted and sprouted nicely. Just waiting for them to mature and see if I get a good amount of peppers.

Review:

The package said that the seeds would germinate in 14-28 days, I think, but I had new sprouts for about 50 days. Almost every seed germinated, using the bathroom light and no heat pad. The first day it got up to 70 degrees outside, I put them outside to get some real sun, but there was a breeze and the little cotyledons got dehydrated. One of them just had a bit of green about a square millimeter, but still survived. They were definitely tougher than expected. I ended up with 10 plants. some of them barely produced, but the best ones put out zillions. I don't think all the seeds were ghost; one plant looked like aji charapita and two looked like aji chombo. I brought in the two best plants for the winter and they barely survived, but took off in the spring. I left the other plants outside and some of them survived our first two freezes. I even got a few edible peppers after the freeze. Seemed to be harder to kill than I thought. Good and hot.
