    I planted my first hot peppers this year. Before that I’d only been growing a nice Wiri Wiri plant which I started from seed.
    Anyway my Q is this. Among the varieties planted my Naga Morich plants are doing really well and I’ll be harvesting my first batch this weekend. I’ve tried to get more info on these and while I have seen info on the Naga hybrids I don’t see much info here on the Naga. Where do these average in the SHU dept.
    Thanks, Mike

    REPLY: Mike, the Naga Morich has a range of 1,000,000 - 1,500,000 Scoville Heat Units, some of the hottest peppers out there. Love them! -- Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.

    Were there recorded deaths because of eating chili pepper?

    REPLY: Deo, not that I've heard of, but I have heard some crazy stories. -- Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.
