My Ghost peppers are not hot. What did I do wrong?

I had a beautiful 4'x 4'x 3' tall plant. I checked peppers for heat as they grew green-orange-red . I got close to a hundred peppers from one plant. Not one had any heat at all -- my other varieties did well too, and normal heat for its kind. I have 2 year old raised beds. My tomatoes were 8 ft ? First time for ghost. Help
