Before I start a few stats about the naga chilli: *Rated at 1,041,427 units on the Scoville scale. For comparison, Tabasco red pepper sauce rates at 2,500–5,000 (the one I tried was the Dorset Naga which is 1,598,227. One of the hottest ratings ever recorded) *In 2009, scientists at India's Defence Research and Development Organisation announced plans to use the peppers in hand grenades, as a non lethal way to flush out terrorists from their hideouts and to control rioters. It will also be developed into pepper spray as a self defense product.
I just wanted to come on here to talk about the naga/ghost chilli. As many people may know there was an RT life in which Burnie brought in some ghost chilli's and a few people tried them. So after seeing that and other videos I decided to be an idiot and buy some for myself and a few friends. I got the Dorset Naga (hotter then the original naga) and we tried them earlier today... it was horrible. The burn was terribly hot and lasted for about 10-15 minutes. That was bad and the feeling of your stomach exploding afterwards made it even worse. I had two and the other four people had two. Me and my friend were sick and one person had to leave school. I do have footage of the event kindly recorded by my friend Joe who also had a chilli. I played know part in the making of the video except starring in it. Viewer discretion is advised as I vomit near the end of the video after eating my second chilli. www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=3785259962768
Ehh, it totally depends on who grew it. For example, some jalapenos can be too hot for most of the general population to take, while others taste literally as hot as a bell pepper, same applies to the ghose chili. The one michael had was store bought, so in other words, weak sauce. I think we should move to have him eat one by an independent grower, which would be undoubtedly 10x hotter.
