    World's hottest Chilli now commercially available

    Beware the world's hottest chilli - from Dorset
    U.K. 14:22pm 1st April 2006

    Two farmers claim to have grown the world's hottest chilli pepper - in the West Country. Joy and Michael Michaud say their crop is so hot they have to sell it with a health warning. They sent a sample of their Dorset naga to a US laboratory where it registered 923,000 on the Scoville heat scale. Experts consider 100,000 to be far too hot for most palates. The previous best score - 577,000 - was set by the Red Savina Habanero. The naga's reading was so high that another test was carried out. This produced an even higher score of 970,000.
    The Dorset naga was developed from a Bangladeshi naga morich pepper they bought in a food shop.
    The Michauds found that continually re-sowing the seeds of subsequent plants intensified its flavour. "It wasn't deliberate," said Mrs Michaud, 48. "We have always gone for a variety of flavours in our peppers so everybody can enjoy them. "We have been selectively breeding for the characteristics we want. But this one is way too hot."
    Guinness World Records is now consideringthe Michauds' claim to have set a new standard. The Dorset naga is grown in 65ft long polythene tunnels and is harvested between July and December.
    Last year, the Michauds sold 250,000 Dorset naga chilli peppers at £1.80 for a pack of six - a £75,000 return - through their Peppers By Post business. They are also sold locally in Haji Khan's Asian food market in Bournemouth.
    Mrs Michaud said: "They are very popular, although I can't imagine many people can eat them. I heard of someone who ended up in hospital after he was tricked into eating one. They are not to be taken lightly."

    No kidding (despite the date !)

    I live here in US many decades never try HABANERO CHILLI before because of the price $6.00 @ lb and did not believe ugly wringle simi round orange chilli can put out the heat untill Khun Don suggested to try it.

    Man!!!!!! it is hot,hotter than Thai chilli for whom likes it hot you will find it is plentiful at Mexican grocery store actually cheaper than Thai chilli ($8/lb.). You don't need to buy a lb. just the few will do the trick.

    Next I will try Dorset Naga, send in order for seeds they did not response yet hopefully they sell the seeds.

    I found Habanero salsa in Price Club in Chula Vista that I used to buy when I lived in Ensenada and the mex like it a lot,
    But I prefer the Jalapeno the most of any and now I can buy them in a fresh vegs shop here in Phetchabun, they come down from Chiang Rai,,very good flavor and plenty hot,,I like them better than the Thai chili and folks that eat at my house seem to think they are OK, but we have tried to grow them and they just wont make, maybe the clay soil I think..

    FaranginPhetch, This is the trick, first you should remove the seeds from chilli and dry them in the sun shine area for few days, it will help stimulate the growing and kill fungus at the same time before put in the ground. Oh don't forget to water too

    well my family are farmers, and they couldn't get the plants to do anything, I have friends who have tried and the plants never make fruit, Had no trouble getting plants to form and replanted just like any other bedding plants, but they just will not make here.

    I think you will be disappointed. According to their website they do not sell the seeds.
