The Ghost, or Bhut jolokiai, pepper is a hybrid of Capsicum chinense and Capsicum frutescens native to India. It is one of the world's hottest chili peppers, with a rating of more than 1 million Scoville heat units. Ripe peppers are 60-85mm long and can have red, yellow, orange, or chocolate skin that is very thin compared to other peppers. The red fruit variety can be smooth or rough and wrinkled. Ghost Peppers are extremely variable because they are interspecific hybrids - there is a wide range in fruit sizes and production per plant. Ghost peppers are used fresh and dried as a food and spice. The plant requires consistent heat and moisture and a growing season of at least three months of temperatures over 21°C. They can be grown in containers indoors to maintain these conditions.
