The Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper) (Assamese: ভোট-জলকীয়া), also known as Naga Jolokia, Bih Jolokia, ghost pepper, ghost chili pepper, red naga chilli and ghost chilli is an interspecific hybrid cultivated in the Indian states of Assam and Nagaland.  It grows in the Indian states of Assam, Nagaland and Manipur. There was initially some confusion and disagreement about whether the Bhut was a Capsicum frutescens or aCapsicum chinense pepper, but DNA tests showed it to be an interspecies hybrid, mostly C. chinense with some C. frutescens genes.
 
Ghost Chili originated in Assam, India.  
 
Ghost Chili Pepper (aka Bhut Jolokia) Certified in 2007 as the hottest chile pepper in the world by The Guinness Book of World Records at over 1 million Scoville units, 401.5 times hotter than Tabasco sauce.
 
The scientific measurement of a chilli's spiciness while jalapeño peppers measure between 2,500 and 8,000. 
 
Classic Tabasco sauce ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units. 
 
Uses
Bhut Jolokia is used as a food and a spice as well as a remedy to summer heat.  It is used in both fresh and dried forms, to not only "heat up" curries, pickles and chutneys, but also to impart two distinct flavors to them. It is popularly used in combination with pork or dried fish or fermented fish. In northeastern India, the peppers are smeared on fences or incorporated in smoke bombs as a safety precaution to keep wild elephants at a distance.  The pepper's intense heat makes it a fixture in competitive chili pepper eating.
 
Handle seeds and fruits with extreme caution.  Plants will act as a perennial if you wish to overwinter them.  Fruit set the second year can be tremendous under ideal conditions.  100 days from transplant.
