(DAL) Where can I find ghosts?

Now that the Ghost Pepper has been proclaimed the hottest in the world, I'd like to try (attempt) cooking with them (one).
I can't seem to find any around DFW. Any help?

    1. re: air

      The Four Horsemen is the ultimate sandwich offered by Chunky's Burgers in San Antonio, Texas. The "four" in its name represent the four chile peppers present on the burger: jalapeno, serrano, habanero, and the ghost chile, better known as the bhut jolokia. Adam from Man vs Food attempted the burger. He also Vlogs about wings that had the pepper on it:

      He says that they tie these peppers to fences in India to keep wild elephants away, and vehemently claims no one should be eating these menace to society.

    2. No one is going to have them quite yet. There are very few producers who grow them. They are sold through the New Mexico State University Chile Pepper Institute. Seeds are $5.00 a packet, but one small problem the seeds are only suited for the native climate and very finicky. Problems abound for anyone trying to grow them.

      I bet most places just use the pepper sauce that is also sold.

      Here is some further info from Chile Pepper mag

      1. Few places sell the peppers. CA John's does have a good number of products using
        the Jolokia. I can attest for the Jolokia Mustard, and the Holy Jolokia hot sauce.
