The above order has just arrived. All the plants are in very good condition-Thank you. I have, over the years, become used to plants arriving badly damaged from other suppliers, generally because they were not packed properly-these were packed very well. Again thank you.

Bhut Jolokia is legendary with Chilli lovers all over the world and revered for its fiery heat. This really is an exceptional chilli!

Until a few years back it was hailed by the Guinness Book of Records; hotter varieties have overtaken it now but don't let that lull you into a false sense of security!

Even before they mature, the green fruits have a fiery heat; once matured to their customary red the fruits are literally blistering and even the tiniest amount of cut flesh touched on to human skin can cause agony, so please use these chillies with caution.

But for those who can stand the heat, the true reward comes in the gorgeous smoked citrus flavour that derives from the almost oily flesh - in fact, that oily flesh helps to make that heat persist in the mouth. Remember, milk and sugar are good to help combat the heat!

We use this to make a viciously hot Chilli sauce which lives up to its name: 'Lava Flow'. We also use it in our Volcanic Chilli Jam (that goes so well with roast duck). And because we love this variety so much we also infuse these into Vodka that we then keep in the freezer - its not only in Iceland that you can experience ice and fire at the same time!

The pale green fruits have a crinkled appearance and mature to a rich red, measuring 2"-3" (5-8 cm) in length and 1"-1" (2.5 - 4 cm) in diameter (at the shoulder) tapering to a point. The plant has a fairly dense habit growing to approximately 2-3 feet (60 - 90 cm) and a similar spread.
