Help identifying hot pepper

mcealxSeptember 6, 2012

Can anyone help me identify this hot pepper? It's green, wrinkly, and very hot! I unfortunately forgot to label this one, and for the life of me can't remember what it is. It's hotter than the jalapenos and banana peppers I also grew.

Looks like a bhut jalokia (ghost) the narrow shape is different than naga, although there are a couple that are blunted like a naga morich, but there is a 90% chance they are bhut Why did you pick them green, if you don't mind saying?

It does look like images of other ghost peppers that I googled, but I don't remember buying a ghost pepper... Thanks for your input! It's good to know that someone else thinks that's a possibility!

They do look like an Assam/Nagaland/Manipur/Bhutan Indian variety... a Ghost pepper variety.

Yeah, they do look ghost like. You should really let them ripen though, they taste much better that way.

They look more like a devil's tongue to me. I do agree also that you should let them ripen as they will gain better flavor regardless of strain.
