These are some of the hottest chillis on Earth, but despite the exotic look, this fiery fruit is grown in the mild climate of southern England.

“you don’t eat it – never, never eat it, especially when you don’t know how hot a chilli is. What you do is you just gently… just touch it to your tongue like that… and it’s very hot, it’s very hot! And then….I don’t know why I do this!!”

The Dorset Naga has become the pride and joy of the couple’s chilli delivery business. They’re so hot that they come with a warning.

One of their main markets in Britain is the Bangladeshi community. Many stores import chillis from Asia, but the
fruit often loses its colour and taste during the plane journey over. As a result, the freshly picked Dorset Naga
has become a hot favourite amongst chilli-loving groups in Britain.

“They’re so much in demand, these Naga chillis, it’s like, you know, by the time Michael sends us the next batch, we’ll be completely run out of them.”

But just how hot are the chillis? In scientific terms, a jalapeno pepper is between three thousand and eight
thousand scoville heat units. In comparison, the Naga measures in at an eye-watering nine hundred thousand (900 000) units – the hottest chilli ever recorded!
