The Hottest Pepper Ever: Introducing the Really Mean Bhut Jolokia Pepper


Buy seeds from Uncle Steve's Hot Stuff

I have always assumed the mighty habanero pepper is the hottest on the planet, but according to a recent New York Times story the habanero's hotness is child's play compared to the Indian bhut jolokia, which has a scoville rating of a hot, hot, hot, million Scoville units (the habanero red savina has a measly 400,000, in case you're wondering). Has anyone screwed up the courage to try one of these bad, bad, bad boys?
