Naga Jolokia, AKA the "Ghost Pepper". No matter what you call it, it was the first world's hottest pepper withe a Scoville heat rating level of over 1 Million SHU. More than double the heat of the old recored holder, the Red Savina Habanero. If you like it HOT, this one is for you. Fruits are 2-3 inches long by 1-1.25 inches wide. Ripens from light green to orange to red. Use fresh or dried whenever you want EXTREME HEAT! Late season fruiting, C. chinense.
These seeds are somewhat difficult to get started. They can take as much as 30 days to germinate. If they are kept to wet or allowed to dry out it will destroy the embryo of the seed killing it. They also need a very long growing season to produce ripe fruit, 180+ days. For northern climates it is required to start indoors mid January to late February. These plants spread and have brittle branches with prolific fruiting, reaching a height of 5 feet. Plant them in rows 6-8 feet apart. Then you will be able to work the rows without damaging the plants. Spacing between plants should be 18-20 inches so they can support each other. Harvest when fully ripe, bright red and shinny. Late season fruiting.
