Dorset Naga Black Chillies: Among the Hottest in the World

The Dorset Naga Black is one of the hottest chillies in the world, and not for the faint of heart! Bred in Dorset, England, it’s not necessarily where you’d expect one of the world’s hottest spices to come from, but the world is full of surprises.

This chilli is capable of reaching an astonishing 800,000 Scoville heat units (SHU)—that’s more than enough to have anyone in tears.

As chillies go, the Dorset Naga Black has a respectable lifespan of around 165 days before it's ready to harvest. So we can assume that not only does it contain great strength, but great chilli wisdom, too.

How To Grow Dorset Naga Black Chillies

  • Step 1: Germination

To grow Dorset Naga Black chillies, bury seeds about 1cm deep into their final pots. Cover with perforated cling film and make sure the soil stays moist. Chilli seeds need a moist environment in order to germinate.

Spicy chillies like warm environments. Between 28 and 30°C is optimal for Dorset Naga Black germination.

Hotter chillies tend to take longer to germinate, so allow up to several weeks for the Dorset Naga Black to sprout.

  • Step 2: Patience

Once the seedling has shown itself, keep it moist and place it in a warm spot with plenty of light exposure.

Now, just care for them. Chillies can be fed a normal tomato feed, but some extra calcium administered as a foliar spray is the way to go if you want to avoid the terrible sight of fruits rotting on your plants.

How and When To Harvest Dorset Naga Black Chillies

Once your Dorset Nagas are between 4 and 5cm long, red, and wrinkled, you’ll know it’s time to harvest. Though this will differ from plant to plant, a mature, healthy Dorset Naga specimen should be around 65cm tall. Once ready, grab the chillies by the fruit stalk and pull them upwards; you'll know they are truly ripe if they come off easily.

A Word of Warning

Whenever handling chillies and seeds, especially ones such as the Dorset Naga Black, it’s best to wear gloves to avoid pepper burn. Even if you feel nothing on your skin, if you rub your eyes or go to the toilet, you’ll soon feel something!

    Het resultaat
    Ik heb 2x een zakje gekocht, van de eerste 6 zaden was er maar 1 uitgekomen en die ging vrij snel dood. De 2de keer was een beter succes en ze waren alle 6 uitgekomen. Ik heb de sterkte 2 gehouden en deze hebben vorige week de eerste oogst gegeven. De eerste plant heeft 26 pepers die groen zijn en ik heb al 5 geoogst die egt bruin waren. De kleur is goed en de smaak heel pittig, en tegelijkertijd zuur zoals ik nog nooit heb geproefd, maar wel lekker! De 2de plant heeft totaal 2 pepers geleverd , is wel 1 meter 5 hoog en stikt van het blad, maar heeft heel het seizoen die 2 pepers gegeven waarvan der nog steeds een niet verkleurd. De smaak was mild pittig en rook niet zuur. De planten verschilde wel redelijk van elkaar. Dit is mijn ervaring in een kweekkas. Ik wil niet zeggen dat het goed of slecht zaad is/was, maar mijn voorkeur is nu dat ik liever generatie 3 of 4 zou willen om verschil te voorkomen.
