Ghost peppers are so hot that they probably cause ulcers :lol:.Ghost peppers are also called Bhut Jolokia. They have a 1,020,000 rating on the Scoville capsaicin (heat) scale.
Jalapeno peppers are only about 4,000.
And the Red Habanero peppers Im growing are about 400,000.
Theres only 3 peppers that are hotter than Ghost peppers but I dont think they are edible.
