    I'm a bit of a chilli man and I've always wanted to grow a Trinidad Scorpion chilli and today I found one (at Masters).

    The tag says this chilli currently holds the Guinness book of world record for the hottest chilli; however, I'm pretty sure there's a hotter one bred by someone in Australia but I can't remember what it was called. Still, this will be one hot mother of a chilli :heat:

    I guess someone will ask "am I going to eat one?" Yeah, I'll probably have a little taste :dance:

    it reminds me of the edible cup they invented years ago, hot chips were served in it. It was made from potatoes, and it was terrible.

    Sounds like a good idea but probably not workable - just like edible undies :ROFL:
