Black Pepper-Free

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.

Bhut Jolokia grows in northeastern India (Assam, Nagaland, and Manipur) and Bangladesh.
"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
