The famous Bhut jolokia at over 1,000,000 scoville heat units is so popular. Could it be that it is rare and unique? Or that only insane people place it on their lips? It is fun to grow and quite a conversation piece.
I grow hundreds of them and collect the seeds. It is fun to hand someone a whole pepper, and watch them jump back as if the blistering heat inside the pepper will attack them from 3 ft away. But, once the pepper has been broken open.
You must have hand protection, eye protection, and breathing protection. I suggest being outside with a fan blowing behind you. Don’t put your face over the pepper, because you’ll start crying and coughing for half an hour.
Oh yeah, enjoy eating it!
