i grew them a few years ago in my garden. since they were grown in joisey rather than the tropics, i suspect they weren't as hot as the authentic ones, but boy howdy, they still were HOT!!!!
i decided to eat one raw just to see what they were like, and my reaction was similar to that guy's in the first few minutes. i mean, i didn't scream or roll around on the floor, but my face sprung leaks at every opening and i was in pain for a good half hour afterwards.
i'm pretty used to eating thai birds both fresh and dried, but ghost chilis are truely that "'nother level".
