CHILLI NAGA BHUT JOLOKIA GHOST CHILLI PEPPER BHUTANESE MIXED COLOURS SEEDS VERY HOT $2.20

The Bhut Jolokia was the world’s hottest chilli between 2007-2011, measuring in at over one million Scoville heat units (SHUs) in replicated tests at the New Mexico State University. It is also commonly known as the ‘ghost chilli’ or ‘ghost pepper’. Bhuts are renowned for their ‘slow burn’ – with the heat taking about 30 seconds to kick in and sticking around for as long as 30 minutes.

This makes them great for creating your own bug spray! Mix the finely sliced up chilli with some washing up detergent and water, put the whole lot in a spray bottle and there you go!
