Where is the Ghost Chili Pepper grown?
The Ghost Chili, or Bhut Jolokia, originates in the Assam region of northeastern India and parts of Bangladesh. The Ghost Chili is currently grown in the Indian states of Assam, Nagaland, and Manipur, and the Sylhet region of Bangladesh. It is also cultivated amidst the rice fields of southern Taiwan and can be found growing on small plots in rural Sri Lanka where it is known as the Cobra Chili.
In 2007, Guinness World Records certified the Ghost Chili as the world’s hottest chili pepper. Several pepper growers claim to have hotter Ghost peppers, but offer Scoville heat unit (SHU) figures that are highly controversial among the pepper growing community. More rigorous scientific tests on these peppers are yet to be conducted. The Naga Viper, Infinity Chili, and the Dorset Naga claim to be hotter than the Ghost Chili, and supposedly has an average peak Scoville rating higher than an average Ghost Chili. The Carolina Reaper pepper and Scorpion pepper are both hotter on the Scoville Heat scale.
