My dad got these hot peppers from his friend one day. But these peppers he got had a strange appearance to them. The sides of the pepper looked like it melted, which made the peppers look like penises (long, curved, with a head and foreskin). My questions to anyone whose into hot peppers:

1. What happened to these peppers that made them have this appearance?

2. Is this a specific kind of pepper, or a hybrid of 2 different peppers?

3. Is this pepper safe to eat?

Never eat a peck of penis peppers.

I doubt this is the answer but there are plastic "vegetable molds" available to gardeners. You slip them over an immature fruit and it grows into it, conforming to the shape of the mold.

Those are called Peter Peppers and, yes, that's what they are named for and, yes, they are a specific breed and, yes, they are safe to eat (provided your guests have a sense of humor).

Seeds are inside the pepper.

Ah, speaking of seeds...the hotness of any pepper is contained in that white pith & seeds in the pepper. Take those out & the pepper is literally quite mild. Surprise your friends by doing this beforehand before you eat them.

Not true, handy. The flesh of a pepper (the colored part) is only very slightly less hot than the insides.

To prove this to yourself, go ahead and remove all the pith and seeds from one fresh habanero pepper, until you're left with just the yellow flesh. Then pop that sucker in your mouth and chew. Just be sure you have a glass of milk handy-- or a beer-- because it's going to hurt, and water will not help.

AuraSeer, ah no. I saw some professional pepper eaters on TV & they explained it.

Really, handy--a lot of heat is contained in the pith and seeds, but in really hot peppers there will be plenty left. Maybe not enough to faze a professional pepper eater (now there's a job description!)but plenty for the likes of us mere mortals. I speak from experience.

Just for the record...after you have sliced those peppers, do not touch your penis! If you do, well, you'll suddenly learn that you know how to break dance.

I defy you to do that with habanero or Scotch Bonnet peppers.

I have procured a path to a picture of a Peter/Penis Pepper.

Prodigious proportions prevented posting.

And men, never ask your partner for oral sex just after he or she has eaten hot peppers. My hubby did and regretted it.

I just wanted to step in and brag. I've eaten two habenero peppers. Didn't need anything to drink, either.

The ring of fire effect that evening was unholy, though.

Hot Peppers...my second favorite subject

The Scotch Bonnet is quite the hotty. Milk, beer and so on,(any liquid) won't help.

You need bread or crackers or something dry and absorbant.

Liquid will just spread the oil from the pepper all around your already burning mouth.

If it makes you sweat when you eat it, its hot enough!!

Regards, Graeme

Damned if I can find it now, but I distinctly remember Unca Cecil addressing the question of rinsing the oils from hot peppers out of your mouth. He'd said the protein casein was the key ingredient in stripping the spices off the roof of your mouth, and my experience confirms it - burritos, hot wings, what have you - either a nice tall glass of milk or a triple-scoop vanilla ice-cream cone helps immensely once you reach the point of "OK, that was fun, ride's over."

Serious Capsicomaniacs (That's pepper-lover to you) will want to check out Geraldine Duncan's wonderful cookbook, "Some Like It Hotter", where she adresses the subjects of fire-eating (That is, spicy foods) and fire-extinguishers (Or, food/drink that clear the palate of spice, even chili oil).

Currently out of print, but still a nifty book - has fire-eating recipies from all over the world, as well as clever anecdotes and such.

You're making me homesick. I live in New Jersey now, where their idea of hot food is Chi Chi's pseudo-mexican restaurant. Now because of you people, I need to plan a trip back to New Mexico just for food.

I've found (through personal experience) that a spoonful of sugar makes the fire go out.

...the fire go ooout..

...the fire go out.

Anyway there is a protein in Milk products that help to cool the capsaicin fire as well.

Cecil Adams weighs in

Why water won't help after eating spicy hot food


Mr. Adams' personal preference for soothing the savage beastly hot spices is tequila.

Geraldine Duncan maintains that a nice, dark, chewy beer (Good beer, not that Rocky Mountain p***water) is the best fire extinguisher for spicy food.

I'll stick with the milk, myself.. never been much of a beer person.

Worst experience with capsaicin: chopping leetle thai chiles for extra spicy guacamole...it got under my fingernails and burned for about six hours. Nothing helped.

Ow. <----understatement.

and then, after washing my hands about twenty times, I rubbed my eyes *once*.

Quadruple ow.
