Some of the first super hot pepper seeds I ever bought were giant bhut jolokia seeds from Pepper Joe. A big part of my early growing success was good seeds. Super hot peppers take a long time to grow so in areas like northern Illinois you have a relatively short window of time to germinate, plant and grow your bhut jolokias if you have any hope of fresh peppers before the first frost. Where you get your seeds is important. If you get seeds that won’t germinate or even worse, seeds that don’t grow true you can waste up to an entire season growing a “not a bhut jolokia”.
Since I’ve started this site I’ve received a number of emails / comments about seeds, specifically bhut jolokia seeds and where to buy them. I don’t sell seeds on this site or anywhere else so if you’re looking to buy some bhut jolokia (or other super hot) pepper seeds I would suggest in no particular order:
All of those vendors are known for their service and quality so if issues arise you can count on them to take care of things.
