Looks like Ghost Pepper

Something very strange. I know in December I germinated 6 ghost
pepper seeds, only 6. The rest of the seeds I gave away. All my
other peppers I started in March. I have some of my peppers in
earthboxes. A couple days ago I was staking some of the peppers
in one earthbox, and I noticed these peppers that look almost exactly
like the Ghost Peppers. The only difference I can see is at the stem
end. It looks a little ribbed. Are there any other super hots that look
very similar to Bhut's? Also, this plant grew super fast in this earthbox
I did a lot of trades, maybe there was a mix up, but I do know one
thing for sure, this plant was started in March.

This is the mystery pepper in earthboxPhotobucket

Here is one of my 6 Bhut's.

From these pictures, those peppers will be grown and ripe in a few more weeks. So you will know for sure then if it is a perfect match to what type you planted. In my opinion those wrinkled green peppers definitely either Bhuts or Nagas of one variety or another. If you only planted Bhuts, then you must have spilled some, and heres your reward! It is definitely a 'super hot' pepper. It isnt a Bell pepper:)!

Sure fire test, when red harvest one, take a small bite.

If it bites back and has you running around the kitchen tearing the door off the firdge for the milk then it's a super hot.

Save seeds.
