Chili Pepper Facts - Ghost Pepper

We love chili peppers, here at Kam's Kettle Cooked Kitchen. In this Chili Pepper Facts blog, we'll learn about the Ghost Pepper.

On the Scoville scale, the ghost pepper is 1,041,427 SHU, to you and me - that's an exceptionally hot chili variety. 

Originally from India, the ghost pepper is also know as the Bhut Jolokia.

In the 2000's the ghost pepper was recorded by the Guinness World Records as the worlds hottest chili pepper. However, that certification has been superseded by the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T pepper and the Carolina Reaper as the race to grow the hottest pepper intensifies.
