The Ghost Pepper, or Bhut Jolokia is originally from India, and the one time hottest pepper in the word getting up to 1 million scovilles. Mature peppers are one and a half inches wide, have red wrinkly skin, and are mind bogglingly hot. They prefer hot humid conditions, and will take a little help to produce well in this region. Raised beds, black plastic or landscaping fabric, row coverings and any other tricks to raise soil and night time temps for the plant will help.
