All i want is some fresh habanero's. Can't find them anywhere in durban, spar and foodlovers market sometimes has but very rarely. Tried growing them but it was a complete failure. Anybody know somewhere that stocks them regularly in durban, i have a serious addiction to them and can't bloody find any.

Fruit and Veg up here in Jhb had tons of different types of habaneros - if they in your area give them a try.

Re carolina's mine are developing at weird times - its mid winter and they fruiting here and there - so I had enough today to make an oil - suffice to say I didn't use gloves and I have tried every trick in the book from rubbing hands in vodka, using lemon juice, dish washing soap and I can't get the bastards off my hands - must remember not to rub eyes and be careful with other bits.....

What, are those chillies for ants?
My chili plants during winter also provided ant size chilis - so I tried one and it didn't have much punch so I was like meh these babies don't pack any heat so started munching away until like the 5th one which obviously was spawned of the devil, man its was like your mouth and throat being ripped apart by miniature demons with hacksaws....quite a tasty surprise that was.

Best review I've seen for a pepper extract

Dear Reader,

Day: 1 Hour:1 Min: 7
I am writing this hoping this is reality. I want to let people know of my existence as I am not sure if I will survive, equipped with a gallon of milk I tempted fate, there is no account in my recent memory to compare this experience to. I find myself leaning on the toilet holding the smooth porcelain thanking it for its cool surface, where am I... when is this... delirium has set in.

Day:Unknown Hour: Unknown Min: Unknown
I have survived, my mouth has returned from the test of hell and one day I hope my sense of taste will return with it. I refused to follow the light, I am alive. Now I fear the worst, as there will come a time that I will need to use the restroom. For this I fear the most, I must choose a God as I may soon may be forced to speak with them. I must prepare.
