What Is A Ghost Pepper
The ghost pepper, or bhut jolokia, is a pepper variety discovered in India. It is thought to be a capsicum chinense variety that was at some point likely crossed with a capsicum frutescens variety. It is now well known for its intense heat and unique, wrinkly shape.
Where Is The Ghost Pepper From?
All capsicum chinense varieties originated in South America and across the West Indies. One of the oldest peppers was found over 6,000 years ago, fully preserved in a cave in Peru.
The ghost pepper is thought to have origins in Trinidad where many of the world’s hottest peppers are found. Eventually, it made its way to Assam and Nagaland, India by way of travel or by local plant breeding.
