Ghost pepper (also known as bhut jolokia) is a super-spicy pepper that originated in India. Although this pepper has been around for centuries, the western world was first introduced to the spicy pepper in 2000. At first, this pepper tastes smoky, almost sweet. But wait thirty or forty seconds—the intense heat sneaks up on you like a ghost.

Our peppers are slowly dried to perfection and have the texture of dried apricots. Don't be fooled by others selling their dried and brittle Ghost Peppers that lack flavor and heat. These are the top-of-the-line, premium quality, and once you get past all that heat you will find our Ghost Peppers have an amazing taste.

Other than that you would have to consume at least 3 lbs. of Ghost Peppers to even ingest a dangerous amount of capsaicin, what gives peppers heat, and it is highly unlikely you would ever get close to eating that amount without having an upset belly where your body rejects the pepper preventing you from consuming more.
