Csigi Growing Naga Peppers

The Naga Jolokia is a chili pepper that occurs in northeastern India (Assam, Nagaland, and Manipur) and Bangladesh. It was confirmed by Guinness World Records to be the hottest chili in the world, displacing the Red Savina. Disagreement has arisen on whether it is a Capsicum frutescens or a Capsicum chinense. The Indians claim it is a C. frutescens,[1] but the derived cultivar Dorset Naga was assessed as a C. chinense. Recent DNA tests have found both C. chinense and C. frutescens genes.

It is also called Bih Jolokia in some places of Assam (Bih = ‘poison’, Jolokia = ‘chili pepper’; in Assamese). Other names are Bhut Jolokia (Bhut = ‘ghost’, probably due to its ghostly bite or introduction by the Bhutias from Bhutan poison chili), Borbih Jolokia, Nagahari, Nagajolokia, Naga Morich, Naga Moresh and Raja Mirchi (‘King of Chillies’). Regardless the moniker, they all refer to the same chili with the name Naga possibly stemming from the extreme hotness represented by the aggressive temperament of the warriors of neighboring Naga Community.

Ripe Nagas measure 60mm to 85mm long and 25mm to 30mm wide with an orange or red color. They are similar in appearance to the Habanero pepper, but have a rougher, dented skin””a main characteristic of the Naga.
