Grow your Own World’s Hottest Pepper

The word on the street is that Think Geek has the hottest pepper you can grow yourself ($4.99 – $12.99). It’s the Naga Jolokia also referred to as Bhut Jolokia or Ghost Pepper has a rating of 1 million SHU (a technical term for it’s really damn hot). Until recently, it held the Guinness Book record for the hottest pepper in the world.

Grow it at your desk. Just pop the tops like a soda can, water and expose to sunlight. You should get your first ghost pepper sprouts within 10 – 15 days. Eat at your own risk.

“401.5 times hotter than Tabasco.”
