Deadly Indian Cobra Chilli – A Pepper that is Hot Enough to Deter an Elephant! – 10 Seeds

They are one of the most hottest known peppers in the world. They are really hot and a single seed of this variety can cause extreme discomfort! Cobra chilli is also used in the manufacture of an incendiary self-defence spray and supposedly deters all but the most determined criminals! The pods of these peppers do look somewhat like snake head, turning a deep red when they are mature, with a coarse skin.

In India, people smear cobra peppers along fence lines to deter elephants and other undesired pests! Please wear gloves while handling cobra peppers otherwise it can be extremely painful if you touch nose, mouth, and eyes.
