If I were in Jill's shoes, I'd grow a chili garden.

well we do grow chilis in our backyard garden, but in Pittsburgh that's a limited season. I am very interested in the "Chilli Growing Kit" banshee mentioned. The BF says he has heard of chocalate habaneros but not white ones or the Jolokia.

Where do I buy the growing kit, banshee?

(Added after a google:) This fits your description somewhat. Is that right?

Do you know what is meant by Bih/ Bhut jolokia?

Bih = poison, bhut = ghost and jolokia = chili or more literally 'that create the sense of burning' in Assamese ( my dear H is Assamese and he like pickles of bih jolokia. He like extreme hot and sour tastes.)

If you only touch the skin of a bih jolokia your finger immediately sense the burning sensation.

Yes I do see your post there, however flavor was not mentioned. For instance, habaneros are very hot, but have a very fruity flavor. I was wondering what kind of flavor the bih jolokia has.

chilli taste

Hi

I had a nibble on a Bih Jolokia.

It has a sweet taste but after a few seconds the heat kicks in. It is not like normal chilli heat. It is brutal but strangely addictive.

The best tasting chilli is the chocolate habanero. There is nothing quite like it. A kind of truffles of the chilli world. What ever you cook with it improves dramatically in taste.

The white habanero makes white fire sauce. You have to dry them out then pulverise them. then make a sauce in the same way as you make a white fish sauce.

It is beautiful.

what does "Naga" translate to?

also for interest, in Bangladesh, they`re called what sounds like; Kasan Mo Rees.

no idea what it translates to directly though?
