If you’re a heat lover, grab your hands on the Dorset Naga Orange pepper plant! Coming out of Dorset, England is one of the hottest peppers in the world. To repeat – one of the HOTTEST peppers in the world! A cross between a Ghost and Naga Morich, the Orange Dorset Naga chili plant will produce peppers that deliver fiery heat to the table. The Dorset Naga is a story of two chili heads with a dream of super-hot perfection, where Joy and Michael Michaud of "Peppers by Post" bought a Naga Moricha plant in Dorset, England. They hand-selected fruity from the Naga Morich (from Bangladesh) and extracted seeds, eventually creating the Dorset Naga!
With recorded SHU of over 1.5 million (wow!), this guy is not far off from the CarolinaReaper. The orange variety is hot but fruity, great for hot salsa, hot sauces or a super-hot chili powder. At a typical 2-3 inches in length, Dorset Naga Orange ripens from green to orange and has very high product yields. Plants have been known to grow as high as 4-ft tall!
Fun fact: The Dorset Naga is technicallya subspecies, originating from the Naga Morich, but is becoming recognized more and more as a separate variety.
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.Read more information onhow to harden off and transplant pepper plants in 6 steps.
