UK: Chef hopes to break world record for hottest chilli pepper

Chef Shaish Alam from Yasmin’s Indian Restaurant in Newcastle Emlyn is trying to break a Guinness World Record by growing the world’s hottest chilli pepper from his greenhouse.

The Bengali Naga, known as the Naga Viper Pepper is one of the hottest chillies ever measured. It was briefly the “World’s Hottest Chilli” in 2011 according to the Guinness World Records and is exceptionally hot. It’s cultivated in Bangladesh and north east India.

“I’ve already planted 3,000 seeds of Naga chilli at our greenhouse in Llechryd and if 1,500 grow I will be delighted. They look powerful and I can sell them for a premium price,” said Shaish, a keen gardener who uses various chillies in his cuisine.
