Meet the King Naga, the largest of the Naga variety of peppers. Hailing from Northeast India and Bangladesh, Naga refers to a group of serpent deities. The King Naga Chile plant produces pods that are not just long, but also wider and heavier in weight. This pepper has similar heat and flavor to the Naga Morich, but it is a much heavier pepper. A heavy producer, these are definitely big peppers. The flavor is sweet and slightly fruity, and almost has a floral taste. Grow the King Naga Pepper and get the most bang for your buck!
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.
