I was watching "heat seekers" and one of the restaurants used a pepper called a famtasma pepper. Supposedly a relative of the jokolia. They didn't go into a ton of detail so I was wondering if anyone here has grown/eaten/heard of them. I can't seem to find seeds...

I think Fantasma is the sauces name,not the peppers name.

Considering I go to south mexico pretty often and the state of michoacan, mexico I haven't heard of any super chile strain there. Now keep in mind that habaneros are said to come from origin in the yucatan which is pretty close.,I would have to say that the Lindo chef is making BIG storys about his peppers "chile fantasma:" = (equals) "ghost pepper" (in translation) and slapped that it was native to him.(which ghost aren't)just... to sell the "exculsive " salsa blend that he had. So, if you want Habanero salsa im sure he makes a good one, thats all...... :scared:

Fantasma = Ghost in Spanish. Sooo probably exactly the same as Bhut Jolokia or "Ghost Pepper"

Don Lava you are still going down to S Mexico even now. You cannot even cross over here, daily firefights in the streets.
