FARM GIRL'S CORNER - Heating things up with the world's hottest pepper.

No, silly, not that, this!


And what is that nasty looking bit of work? That my friends, is the Goode Olde Bhut Jolokia pepper, so called because if you eat the tiniest bit your butt is going to turn to pure jolokia. It is also called the ghost pepper but whatever you call it, do not call it edible.

This is a horrid pepper and in my opinion, unfit for human consumption.

Can't be hotter than the hottest habanero, you say, and you can eat those right enough. Habanero's! HAH! Oh a little warm perhaps and yes you need to  be very careful as far as skin or eye contact.

But a fiercely hot habanero measures a paltry 300,000 units on the Scoville scale, which as all do know is the scale for determining chemical heat in food products.

That wrinkly red thing in the picture? Over a million units my friends.

But they are so much fun to eat, you are thinking. Well lets watch some of the hijinx and tomfoolery associated with eating ghost peppers. This old buzzard probably won't ever have another. And this self styled hard ass? Um, don't think so. This brave girl? How about this marine you know he's tough as nails.

Aren't they having a good time, boys and girls?

But you know what? The ghost pepper is a loser. It comes with an "L" written on it in indelible ink. And why is it a loser? Because of this little slice of hell.


It's hot! How hot is it? Try 2,000,000 Scovilles. People, you do not eat things like this!  These are not meant to be placed in the mouth, or handled with bare skin. You maybe weaponize the damn things!

It's called a Scorpion for the luvva Myth! We do not eat things called "scorpion" anything!

But inevitably, some jackass is willing to try it. And here is one such. Look at the fun she's having!*

You can buy these seeds, ladies and gentlemen. I recommend that you do not. Grow a nice cherry red sweet bell and stuff it with rice and beef and tomatoes. Much much better all the way around!

Thanks for stopping!  (Don't eat these frickin' peppers!)

*Someone should shoot the cameraman, as a public service.

Good grief this thing is even hotter!
