Growing The Extremely Hot Bhut Jolokia / Ghost Pepper Plant.

The Ghost pepper plant can be grown both in a container or in the ground. Many growers of this extremely super-hot pepper like best growing it in a container of least 5 gallons or more. One of the advantages to growing in a container is that the Ghost pepper plant grows slow and takes quite some time to produce peppers. So, with this slow producing pepper plant if you live in a area with a short growing season the plants can be more easily protected from frost or cold weather. Even though the Ghost pepper is slow to produce when it does it is a fairly heavy producer. The Bhut Jolokia plant will produce between 20 to 30 peppers when fully grown and sometime up to 45 or more.

Ghost Chiles grow best in full sun and with day temperatures at least 70 F and night temperatures of no lower than 50 F.

5 of 5 Ghost pepper plants September 29, 2021
Reviewer: Carol C  
I just received my first order from you. It was for three Ghost pepper
plants. I was concerned because you said they were shipped on May 18
priority mail, but I did not receive them until May 22. Five days packed
and in shipment could not be good for the plants. However, I was
extremely impressed when I opened the box. I have ordered many plants by
mail over the years. The quality of these far exceeded any mail order
plant I have ever received. I hope the plants grow and produce as good
as the condition in which they arrived. I've already started bragging
about you to my gardening friends. Thank you
