where did you find that face I love it.


I figured the ones in the store are hot like cayenne I did one year.

I didnt even think about picking my heat level until camprn asked how hot do you want them Smile

Let us know what you decided on.

The poblanos are just my speed... can't go much hotter than that and still enjoy my food. One year we grew these wee Thai peppers (big bushes with LOTS of small very hot peppers) that even friends who were veteran hot pepper lovers couldn't take the heat. WOW. Shocked

There are a couple of really funny youtube videos of people trying to eat that Bhut Jolokia pepper. Apparently its heat gets worse over time instead of being immediately hot.
