They are very similar looking to Habanero peppers, but they have a rugged skin. This pepper is only reserved for those who wish to add true fire to their hot sauce.
These chilies are extremely hot with a record braking Scoville Heat Units: 855,000 - 1,001,304. Three times more than Habanero and 150 times hotter than the common Jalapeno. The intensity of the Ghost Chile Pepper is so strong it creates a blistering hot and sometimes extremely painful sensation lasting up to 30 minutes or longer. Wear gloves when preparing them to avoid contact burns from the capsaicin-laced oils in the pepper.
