    I have always enjoyed spicy foods and I usually grow datil and jalapeno peppers in my vegetable garden. This past year i became interested in the super hots and have added several different cultivars to my garden.

    Fish Pepper
    Trinidad Scorpion
    Chocolate Douglah
    Bhut Jalokia Red
    Florida Reaper (new exotic not yet certified)
    Anybody else grow hot peppers. I will also swap seeds for something I don't have.

    This is the Bhut Jalokia or Ghost Pepper
    This one of the hottest peppers in the world

    I just read the other day the the Trinidad Scorpion pepper was considered the Hottest pepper in the world. I think that has since changed.

    The Carolina Reaper is now the worlds hottest. It was developed by a guy in Ft Mill SC in conjunction with Clemson. Here's his site

    After your mouth is scalding hot, how do you tell that something else is hotter? Does something fall out like teeth or flesh? Is it a timing thing...like this one is hotter longer than this one? And somehow this is all pleasurable to you, your palate, and your stomach? I don't like crying when I am eating...but have fun with that.

    Amen brother ... I prefer to inflict pain on my food - not the other way around. BTW... I grew up in Tallahassee. Back in the day the tagline for the Tallahassee Gator Club was "Civilization amongst the savages".

    I grew up in Perry...visited Tallahassee for shopping and Little League tournaments. Have lived here twice now...my kids really liked it here. Personally, I would rather live in Gainesville...lots of family history there...and the Gators, of course.

    Was at a huge landscaping yard art place today. This old guy was busy playing in a a nice garden in the back of the property. I went back there to admire his work while the womens shopped. He ended up give me this bag.... I'm afraid to try some. Obviously some bell and bananas. I think the orange are ghosts. Those itty bitty red ones scare me (he said those would blister me :ugh:) You have any guesses coot....

    Orange ones have no heat. The long red one lit my ass up with a tiny nibble. It was immediate heat.

    The little tiny guy..... Is interesting. I didnt think it was hot. Then the heat started slowly after maybe 30 seconds. Got to full intensity after maybe 2 minutes. We are talking a very tiny sliver. There is no relief after many minutes and half of my mouth is totally numb.

      An odd coincidence in that I have little interest in these things - but a friend of mine just yesterday mentioned something called Hatch chilies. Apparently they are from a small town in New Mexico and are quite the big deal for chile connoisseurs. She said now is the best time to get them here on the east coast.

      YMMV.

        The orange pod at the top left next to the green bell looks like an Orange Naga Jalokia which is a derivative of the Ghost. It should be extremely hot. There is a pod to the right of it I cant identify, possibly a Patty Pan, or maybe another another less ripe Naga. The long red ones are probably Giant Cayenne or maybe Nu-Mex Big Jim Cayenne. Did you see the tiny red pepper growing on the plant. If the pods were growing upright (pointing towards the sky) they are most probably Rooster Spurs or maybe a Sport Pepper, My brother in law brought me a Rooster Spur last week off his plant. I haven't tasted it cause I'm drying the pod for seeds. Rooster Spurs should be much hotter than a Sport Pepper. That's a nice mix of peppers.
        Contact MidwestChomp for a better ID, he's the hot pepper guru on this board,

        My grandfather used to grow all sorts of hot peppers including those little red ones and a pepper called the Tepin pepper. It actually grew on a hard wood bush type plant that would lie for years. He would bring them in the garage during the winter the bushes were small enough to fit three into one of those rectangular 3' patio flower boxes. They were a deep red, almost burgundy in color and about the size of a pencil eraser. Hottest thing I have ever tasted. He would chop up 2-3 every morning and mix them in with his eggs. Insane if you ask me. But I will say this, he was sharp as a tack until he passed about 14 years ago. I brought those bushes home with me from North Carolina but they died out after a few years. The crazy thing about those peppers was the drier they got the hotter that got. Not sure if that is normal or not.

        I was wrong on the orange ones. Very wrong.

        We are making sausage, sliced fresh peppers, onions, and mushrooms tonight. I said, "lets use the orange peppers, they werent hot" and took a big bite.

        That has to be a ghost pepper.
