I am looking for a pepper called Nagu Jolokia hot pepper. Apparently it can be purchased in Toronto as a fresh pepper. It is used in Indian cuisine. My nephew would really like to buy some.
The Naga Jolokia (also known as Bhut Jolokia, Ghost Chili, Ghost Pepper, Naga Morich) is a chili pepper that grows primarily in Assam state of India, but also in northeastern India (Nagaland, Manipur), Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. In 2007, it was confirmed by Guinness World Records to be the hottest chili in the world, replacing the Red Savina. Disagreement has arisen on whether it is a Capsicum frutescens or a Capsicum chinense. The Indians claim it is a C. frutescens, but recent DNA tests have found that it is an interspecies hybrid, mostly C. chinense with some C. frutescens genes.[2
The link to Wikipedia - shows a photograph of the pepper.
