Need help identifying peppers

    My mother in law brought some peppers home from work.  I know what the jalapenos and habaneros are, but I am trying to identify the red and green wrinkly peppers.  I took a bite out of one for fun and I swear to all things holy, I thought I was going to die.  After some investigation, it looks like a ghost chili.  Any other thoughts?

     
  2. I agree. I have never grown them myself, but I have seen them at the farmers market and they look just like that. It was the record holder for hottest pepper until recently.

    My mother-in-law didn't know what they were. The person at work that gave them to her said they were too hot for her to eat.

    i just can't get over how hot it was.  One of the peppers had a bad spot and needed to be used so I just took off a bite and swallowed.  [​IMG]

    Correct the green one is the same pepper as the red one it's just not ripe yet and they are both HOT

    I'm going to break out the ole food dehydrator tomorrow to throw on the ghost chilis and habaneros plus the 10-15 habs i already have in my garden that are ready to go.  I smoked habaneros a couple of weeks ago and made some crushed habanero flakes.  Maybe I'll do that again?

    At a few of the Gatherings we have made a few habanero and scotch bonnet ABT's and some people actually liked them a bit too hot for my tastes tho

    Just threw these Habs (and a few from my garden) and Ghost Chilis on the dehydrator a few hours ago.  The pain that keeps on giving!  Also managed to save a bunch of seeds from the ghost chili i ate last night.  Looks like we'll be having ghost chilis in the smokingreg house next fall!
