Any hot-heads out there recognise what chilli type these are - I thought they were habaneros but they look a lot like the ghost chillies I found on one website.http://i63.tinypic.com/2j5dtab.jpg
- if anyone knows what the yellow one is, too, that would be a bonus. My friend bought a massive bag full from a market for 2 quid. He made some noodles with a whole red one and couldn't eat it. He brought some for me because he knows I love the hot sauces. I bit a quarter off the end of one and immediately felt it in my nose, at it and it was pretty hot, but I managed it. I then took two more bites and they were like nothing, but there weren't many seeds in the bites. Then I took one more bite that was near the top and where the seed cluster was and boom! It was pretty bad. I then took a big swig of water and it was a huge mistake because instead of just having heat localised to one part of my mouth it was everywhere... and then to top it all off I rubbed my eye and a chilli seed got stuck under my eyelid. I ran a cold shower in my eye until I swilled it out, then my eyes were super red and I looked like Dracula. And of course an hour later I wanted to do it again before we went out to the pub.
I've eaten raw scotch bonnets on stag do's a few times but I can't remember how it compared to these as it's hard to judge when you're bammed.
Any help appreciated, cheers.
