A very popular and well known pepper. Chili heads and chefs like to cook with these peppers and eat them fresh. They can be used along with other peppers to create hot sauces and powders. They are very hot but have a sweet and fruity flavor to them. The Scoville range for the Ghost Pepper would be from 850,000 to 1,040,000 (SHU). This was also one of the hottest peppers in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records. If you like red bumpy super hot peppers, you may want to try something a bit hotter, like Death Spiral Pepper.
