Chile, Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia), Whole

Yes, it’s the real deal. Confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the hottest pepper in the world in 2007. The Ghost Clile Pepper (Bhut Jolokia) has a Scoville rating of just over 1 million units. This is twice as hot as the previous record holder, the Red Savina. This chile is also known as Bih Jolokia, Borbih, Dorset Naga, Mirch, Mircha, Naga Morich, Naga Moresh Nagahari, Raja Chilli, Raja Mircha and Tezpur. These chiles are light, and there are approximately 9 peppers in 1/4 oz.

Many of the names for this chile include the word “Naga” which was the name of the ferocious Naga warriors, who once inhabited Nagaland in Assam, one of India’s most fertile chile growing regions.

The Ghost Chile is all about heat, however, once you get past the heat you'll notice a balanced, slightly fruity flavor. Try using them to add heat where wanted, but remember that they are potentially 5 times hotter than many habaneros. Use extreme caution when working with these chiles. Wear protective gloves and wash all utensils and work spaces thoroughly with soap and water when finished.
