Ghostly Jalapeno

Capsicum Chinense

The Ghostly Jalapeno is a cross between a Jalapeno and Bhut Jolokia. Initially, you get a light bhut flavour when tasting it, but then it becomes sweet like an apple or a bean. These chillies are normally compared with habaneros, as they are easy to grow.

The chilli pods start off with a green colour and ripen into a fiery red colour.

Heat Factor: Ghostly Jalapeno rates at 30 000 – 50 000 on Scoville Heat units.

Chilli peppers grow best in hot climates and won’t tolerate frost, and they enjoy full sun. The ideal growing temperatures are between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius.

Chillies can grow in containers as long as they are positioned on a sun-filled windowsill. The size of the pot should be at least 10cm in diameter. When you notice roots growing out of the drainage holes, it is time to replant into a larger container.
