Picture This: Peppers

This was a Christmas gift from my daughter.

Grow your own fireflower!
Fire Pepper!

As confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records, the hottest peppers in the world are the Naga jolokia. LIAR – it was just dethroned on 12/3. However, this is still the hottest pepper you can grow yourself. These peppers also go by the names Bhut jolokia and Ghost Pepper. Let’s examine these names. Jolokia is very similar to jalopy – a broken down vehicle. So, eating this pepper (Bhut jolokia) could lead to you having a broken down backside (Butt jalopy). Also, it could make you wish you were dead (Ghost Pepper). Time to grow your own now, with the Grow Your Own World’s Hottest DIY Pepper kit!

And starting your Grow Your Own World’s Hottest DIY Pepper is super easy. You pop open the tops and bottom like you would a soda. Then add water and stick in happy sunlight. You’ll have sprouts within about two weeks. Just remember, once your Grow Your Own World’s Hottest DIY Pepper kit grows peppers – be careful. Eat at your own risk and all that (we’ve seen the YouTube vids, and it ain’t pretty). Because these puppies are over 1 million SHU – and that is a small sun in your mouth!

Grow Your Own World’s Hottest DIY Pepper

Just add sunlight, water, and love, and you’ll begin seeing sprouts within about 10-15 days (of course, actual pepper cultivation will take longer than that and require more care).
You’ll be growing your own Naga jolokia (aka: Bhut jolokia; aka: Ghost Chili).
Scoville Heat Rating: 1,001,304 SHU (confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records).
Can Dimensions: 2.6″ diameter x 3.75″ tall

I planted (heh, opened the can and put it on the shelf) a month or so after Christmas. It’s now almost September.

Here is the progress:

For reference, “Figment” the purple guy one the left is about 3″ tall.

Look close:

Little, tiny peppers. Yum, I can’t wait for chili this fall.
