    Does anybody on here have a good source online for ordering live Bhut Jolokia pepper plants, i will need to plant around may 10-20. I am also looking for some Habanero red savina peppers also to plant.


    Thanks for the help.

    Only one good use for Ghost Peppers. Give one to the pepper head that says. There's no pepper i can't eat.
    Make sure and have a vidio cam handy when they try it.

    The chilepepper institute in NM is a great place to get seeds. I know the have the ghost chile seeds, I almost bought some, but after talking with one of the people there, they told me just how hard it is to get them to produce. Germination can take several weeks, and then the growing conditions have to be ideal. She told me that even in their controlled environment, it was very hard to get them to fruit and when they did, to hold their fruit till maturity. Living here in Mn, I do not have the ideal weather conditions to do so, maybe in the future I will try them indoors. I hope if you do get some, they work for you. I had some peppers last week that I picked up. Oh yeah, they are frickin HOT HOT HOT. Just ask my kids when they thought they could handle them. My boy downed almost a half gallon of milk LOL.

  11. I got some birdseye pepper seeds from 'Plant Universe' on ebay; he also threw in a packet of jalapeno seeds. I just looked and he has bhut jolokia seeds for sale...they seem a little steep at $7 for 25+ seeds but then again maybe it's not.

    Got my seeds and a sample Ghost chili from a SMF member today. He even sent me a dried Ghost pod also, and WOW! HOT, VERY HOT. Thanks again.

    Does anyone have a good plan to get these bad boys from the seed to a mature plant in the ground?

    Any help would be great.

    I still have about 5 pounds of the Ghost Peppers in the freezer and about 1.5 - 2 pounds dried... I make hot sauce, salsa useing them as well as Competition Winning Chili with them...all sorts of uses!!!!
     
  15. I finally got a seed to germinate. My brother got me 10 seeds for Christmas (big spender). I put 6 in the peat pots and nothing happened after 2 months. So I put the other 4 in a plastic bag on a damp paper towel sitting on the warm computer. the mold got 2 of them, one germinated, and the other hasn't done anything. The germinated one I carefully cut the paper towel with the roots on it, and planted in a peat pot. I now have it in a glass jar that I take outside during the day, and pull inside at night when it gets cold.
    I am hoping that it wont die as I try to harden it up to the outside climate.

    I like things hot, but the one time I ate a whole habenero, I got blisters in my mouth. So if I do get mature fruits, I don't know what I'll do. Most I'll probably dry and use for seasoning, but I think I might try one just to see. I don't know, still afraid of it.

    New Mexico, in the garden center. Just saw them today while I was getting some tomato plants. They even had a hand written sign saying that they were the worlds hottest pepper. I was going to get one then changed my mind, because I could not think of any reason to have such a deadly pepper within reach of my grandkids.
