An accidental cross from a land far away. 'Blue Ghost' pepper met with something beautiful and this is the super-hot and tasty result! 'Blue Ghost' is a cross of 'Neyde' to a 'Yellow Ghost' pepper. These started out purple and ripened to orange. No telling how the next generation will turn out! Let us know what you find! From pepper breeder Kevin Bane, of South Carolina.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Kevin is an experimental pepper grower and typically grows most his peppers in the same field with little isolation distance. This allows the possibility for a small percentage of his seed (2-3%) of any given "cultivar" or "breeding population" to be crossed up. We are comfortable with this possibility. Mostly the cultivars are very stable. And also, given EFN's propensity for selling experimental grex and genetically diverse populations, we don't expect this deter most our customers.
