Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia) Magic Plant Growing Kit
Product Details: Grow Ghost Peppers (a.k.a. Bhut Jolokia Chiles) in style and ease with Magic Plants! Inside of a cool-looking aluminum can (much like a soda can) printed with chili peppers and flames, there is soil and seeds. With a little water, time and TLC, you'll be experiencing one of the hottest peppers on the planet, plucked straight from your very own plant.
Growing directions (how to grow Ghost Peppers) are included on the packaging:
~ Ideal temperatures for growing are 77-95 F (25-35 C). Please note, this is warmer than room temperature, so you may want to use a seedling heat mat.
~ Growth in 10-15 days. Keep in full sunlight.
~ Without plenty of sunlight, growth may become slow and plant may wither.
~ You may plant buds elsewhere (in a planting pot or in ground.)
~ Take the center bud off when the plant reaches to 3.5 inches (10 cm) high to stimulate growth.

Ghost Chiles have over 1,000,000 Scoville units of heat, making it one of the "Superhots". In 2007, the Guinness Book of World Records verified that the Bhut Jolokia was the "Hottest Pepper in the World". It is red in color with roughish, thin skin. Sometimes, it is slow to germinate. Plants are very large. In India, the pepper is smeared on fences to keep Elephants at bay. The oleoresin is used in Hand Grenades and Pepper Spray. The Ghost Chili is good raw, pickled or cooked.
