Do You Dare to Try the World’s Hottest Pepper?

I LOVE hot and spicy foods. I’ve been known to get strange looks when asking for hot ‘sauce’ at restaurants, but I’m not sure if I’m ready to try the Bhut Jolokia, better known as the ghost chili pepper, deemed the world’s hottest pepper. This is especially the case when it’s being considered to be used as a weapon by the Indian Army. I like the sound of it though. Like a true pepper or spicy food lover, you love it because it hurts.

    Just fyi, the picture you posted is of a habanero plant. I also am nervously awaiting the opportunity to try a ghost pepper. I planted my seeds this past winter in a greenhouse and the plant is now about a foot tall. Good luck to your plants! :)
