(Capsicum x ‘Naga Viper’)
Heat Rating out of 10: 9
Bred originally in Italy, this very hot chilli is a cross between the Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Chilli) and the Pimenta da Neyde so be very careful and use gloves when handling this chilli. Fruit changes to pink/purple when it is ready to harvest.
Basil (holy, lemon, lime, green ruffles), garlic, ginger, coriander, galangal, turmeric, lemon grass and cumin. All meats and most vegetables along with coconut, lime and lemon go well with chillies.
Chillies form an integral part of many Asian and Latin American dishes along with some European, African and North American. Indeed, over time most cuisines have added this fiery little fruit into their recipes. There are many forms that vary in colour, shape, flavour and of course heat. Use this chilli to make a very hot salsa and in any other dish that needs some fire.
Plant in a protected spot out of fierce sunlight and wind in a well drained but moist soil. May need some support when it ages.
Regular applications of Seasol and Powerfeed will keep the plant looking good and producing lots of tasty chillies.
