Hot Indian Peppers are some of the best chiles in the world to grow – they have great heat and flavor.
One of our favorite types of Hot Indian Peppers include the Bhut Jolokia Ghost Pepper. We have several colors of Bhut Jolokia seeds to choose from – including Purple Bhut Jolokia, a Peach Bhut Jolokia, and a Chocolate Bhut Jolokia, White Bhut Jolokia, Yellow Bhut Jolokia. Bhut Jolokia Indian hot peppers have a nice sweet flavor with a good burn.
Bhut Jolokia peppers are delicious in fresh salsa, chutney, jerk sauces, hot sauces, and ghost pepper jam! Bhut Jolokia Indian hot peppers are landrace peppers and were named after the Indian Cobra. The fierce bite of the pepper is like the venom of this highly venomous snake! Try out our Ghost Pepper Salsa Recipe which highlights the amazing flavor of these fruity and spicy Bhut Jolokia peppers.
There are also other great Hot Indian Peppers like the Jwala pepper shown above which is the most popular hot pepper grown and used in India – they have super large crops of super hot Indian peppers with wrinkled skin. If left to ripen on the plant, they will turn orange and then red at full maturity.
