Bhut Jolokia in the GVRD?

mborghese | Feb 3, 201209:43 PM

Dear Fellow Chowhounds;

I'm a budding (get the pun?) gardener in Vancouver and I'd love to know if I can find a place to buy Bhut Jolokia (aka Ghost Pepper / Ghost Chili) seeds, plants, or even whole peppers?

I'd love to start growing my own so I can play with the ridiculously hot peppers - so if I can't find any seeds, I can prob. dry some from a whole pepper.

Maybe I could buy some seeds from a local restaurant that uses the peppers, and doesn't use the seeds?

Sorry if this is more of a gardening question than a food question, but I've been asking around and most local garden supply stores in the GVRD don't carry specialty peppers. I figure that the crazy foodies on here might have some extra insight, since I'm sure there are some heat-chasers on here!
