Dorset Naga® (Capsicum chinense), with a heat level averaging around a million Scoville Heat Units (SHUs), is one of the hottest chillies in the world. Its scorching heat is combined with a distinctive fruity aroma, making it a truly exceptional chilli.
Dorset Naga® was developed at Sea Spring Seeds by us from the Bangladeshi chilli called naga morich. The original stock came from an Asian shop in Bournemouth, and it took us several years to develop the distinctive, uniform and stable population that has been recognised as a separate variety by the Community Plant Variety Office (CVPO).
Other super hot chillies, such as bhut jolokia, though closely related to Dorset Naga, are not the same variety – as by determined by independant trials conducted in France by CVPO. Seed Spring Seeds has been awarded Plant Variety Protection, meaning it is the only authorised seller of Dorset Naga seeds.
