Plant Features

Ghost is one of the world's hottest peppers! Do NOT just pop this one in your mouth, right out of the garden, unless you are into EXTREME heat and pain. These vigorous plants love heat and humidity, and produce loads of fiery fruits that turn from green to orange to red as they ripen. Peppers can be harvested at different stages.

A little note: to control the heat, remove the seeds and the membrane on the inside of the pepper before adding to your favorite recipes; chopping it very, very fine will more evenly distribute the heat throughout the dish. We recommend you wear nitrile or latex gloves to protect your hands and avoid touching your face while handling Ghost peppers.

Our Ghost Hot Pepper Plants are grown with a commitment to natural methods, ensuring they're healthy and robust. Guaranteed to arrive alive and thriving!

Companion Planting: Cucumber, Eggplant, Okra, Squash, Swiss Chard, Tomato

Great Product!

I had never ordered from GrowJoy before, but really wanted to grow some peppers I couldn't find locally. I ordered three varieties of hot peppers and couldn't be happier! Every pepper was very healthy, protected nicely in the packaging, and got to my doorstep in a timely fashion. I will definitely order from GJ again!

Did you see a Ghost? Ghost Pepper, that is!

I grow peppers ever year from Jalapeno to Habenro. When I want to add some specialty peppers, I rely on Grow Joy and they have disappointed yet. Package came quickly and the plant is thriving. Got a Ghost Pepper going now!

These babies came in just like I had started them myself (actually better). If these don't make it, it's all my fault. They're packaged in a way that when I opened them, I was stunned! This is awesome and thank you for packing them so nicely!

Ghost Pepper Plants

I have had a difficult time finding these plants until I found this source on the internet. I ordered six and they came in and they were very healthy and thriving.They have been in the ground about a week and are growing quite well in the warm Mississippi weather. The lady that helped me was very nice and I am sure she had to have had some "Southern" in her because she was so helpful. Will be order more next year.

Ghost pepper plants arrived in great shape still in great shape just takes a lot more effort than the habaneros I got at the same time

Great Hot Pepper plant

Got it in perfect planting condition. Placed it in the ground the same day and watered and it has already started to grow out nicely.

From Crystal | June 28, 2013

great place to buy online

I'm glad I have the opportunity to leave feedback, my husband was leary about buying plants online but since Ghost Pepper plants are so difficult to find in stores I ordered anyway. This was my first order from this company and I was very pleased. Honestly UPS handled the box poorly and it looked like they dropped it from 30k feet but because this company took extra time and care to box the plants properly, I received them in perfect condition and they are doing very nicely. Thank you GrowJoy I will definitely order from you again.

From Jessie | May 05, 2013

Ghost Peppers were dead

I ordered 2 Ghost pepper plants. When they arrived they were less that 1 inch tall. All the other peppers were at least 6 inches. The ghost peppers died within 24 hours. Customer service was great and quickly refunded my money.
