In 2006, the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed the Ghost Chili as the Hottest Chili pepper in the World. Now, you can grow your own Ghost Chili Pepper no matter what your green thumb level is. The Magic Plant Ghost Chili seeds come pre-planted in a recyclable aluminum growing container so all you have to do is Open, Water, and Grow. Later, you will want to transplant your Ghost Chili into a larger growing container, or plant them in your garden. So whether you are in an urban setting or down on the farm, any place is perfect for growing these peppers. Detailed growing instructions are included.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Planting instruction are important. If you aren't going to follow them don't buy the seed. I've grown ghost peppers for a few years now. You MUST keep plant in warm environment, do not overwater, and I use potassium nitrate when I first start them. I keep plants in a room at 80 degrees until they are about 8". Then I start hardening the plant for a week before placing out doors. We harvest up to 125 peppers per plant. They grow to about 4' to 4.5'. I recommend these peppers to serious growers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Growing very well I followed the directions and within a couple weeks I had 9 sprouts. Not wanting to trim any off I decided to abandon the can they came in and transplanted into cups. Of my 9 sprouts 7 are left and they have grown fantastically. I definitely recommend this. Keep in a warm place. Above 70 degrees and below 95. Otherwise expect them to fail they are tricky plants by their nature. July 24, 2014

Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Disappointed Have followed the directions to the letter and to the writing of this note feel as if I have wasted my money! May 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by needs soil warmth to grow I have bought this brand ghost chili product from various venues for the last couple of years. If you read the directions, they will tell you that the ghost chili (along with basil and many other seeds) needs soil warmth for germination. I place the watered soil (vermiculite in this brand) on top of a warm refrigerator. in about 7 to 10 days, i see sprouts. I then move the chilies to a sunny south facing window, until time to transplant outdoors. never had a problem with germination. February 13, 2013
