    @Johnny - If you are still looking for Ghost Pepper plants, I saw them for sale last Friday at Meinke Garden Center, 5803 West Touhy Avenue, Niles. Also had Scotch Bonnets in a special area for super hot peppers. They are still in the greenhouse so I would keep them in a shaded area for about a week before putting them in full sun on a patio. Best place to find unusual tomato and pepper plants..
