Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic Yellow Ghost Pepper
Organic Yellow Bhut Jolokia or Yellow Ghost Pepper
10 seeds per pkg
We are not sure why they are called ghost peppers...other than you should be afraid of them ;)
You certainly make a deal with the devil when you stick one of these hot peppers in your mouth.
Bhut Jolkia is said to hold the 2007 Guinness Book of World Records as the hottest pepper with Scoville units in excess of 1,000,000 That is over 300 times hotter than most jalapenos to give you a frame of reference. The most anyone has ever eaten in a sitting is 13 peppers as seen here on the Guinness Books video.
Ghost peppers have wrinkled skin with very thin walls. They range from 2-3" in length. The plant itself will reach 3-4' if you live in zone 8 plus. Very productive.
This pepper needs consistent heat to germinate. It prefers 80-85F plus and is still slow to germinate so be patient as it can take 4-16 weeks. Using a heat mat will greatly help keep a CONSTANT warm temperature. Dropping soil temps at night will delay germination. We not only start them in the greenhouse, but leave them there in 3-5 gallon pots to grow all year because our nights can be cool. We have some plants that are three years old and still keep producing!
