Ghost Pepper Plant Seeds (Bhut jolokia) 25+Seeds
Ghost Pepper -Bhut jolokia is used as a food and a spice.It is used in both fresh and dried forms, to "heat up" curries, pickles and chutneys. It is popularly used in combination with pork or dried or fermented fish. In northeastern India, the peppers are smeared on fences or incorporated in smoke bombs as a safety precaution to keep wild elephants at a distance.The pepper's intense heat makes it a fixture in competitive chili pepper eating.
The Bhut Jolokia has been around for many centuries, but was only introduced to the western world in 2000. In 2007 The Ghost Pepper was certified as the hottest Chili Pepper on the planet in The Guinness Book of World Records.
Ripe peppers measure 2.5 to 3.3 inches long with a red, yellow, orange, white, purple or chocolate color.
The first flavor you will notice is an intense sweet chili flavor, the heat does not kick in for 30 – 45 seconds. Once the heat kicks in, expect sweating, watery eyes, hiccups and shortness of breath. The burning generally intensifies over 10 – 15 minutes and subsides after 30 – 40 minutes.
TIP: Don’t touch any of the super hots with bare hands. Use latex gloves when handling hot peppers or seeds. I have found that with simple plastic food prep gloves, the pepper oil still gets through.
