The Arms Race to Grow World's Hottest Pepper Goes Nuclear

Arms Race to Grow World's Hottest Pepper Goes Nuclear - WSJ.com

From link:

Alex de Wit, who co-owns the Chilli Factory in Morisset, Australia, with his brother Marcel, is one of the evil geniuses behind the Butch T. The trick, besides some nifty breeding by Australia's Hippy Seed Co., is specially enriched soil. He says "worm poop" is one of his secret weapons. He plans to submit to Guinness another batch of Butch T peppers being grown in tropical Queensland. He estimates that the more favorable growing conditions could add 10% to their potency.

I've never understood the drive to grow the hottest peppers.

One could use some of the hot sauces to strip chrome off a bumper.

As for me if I get a good endorphin rush and break a light sweat the pepper is juuuust right.

i'm disappointed that the wsj allowed such poor titling if an article. it has nothing to do with nuclear science, or a nucleus of any kind. it's more about naturally enriched doil and environment.

the editor that allowed this should be brought to fukashima daiichi for a lesson.

At the risk of offending....

Why not Hiroshima or Nagasaki?

LIGHTEN UP!

It was just a metaphorical reference.

Understand and agree.

I occasionally enjoy my BIL's home grown habaneros halved with a squeeze of lime and a dash of sea salt but that's my limit.

Don't try this on an empty stomach!
