I've been trying to cook a proper Phall for ages now but the local chilli peppers are not hot enough. I put 20 fresh chillies and ten dried ones last time I cooked one, it wasn't even 25% as hot as a Vindaloo let alone on the same planet as a Phall. Nothing even 1/10 as hot a Scotch Bonnet in SE Asia.
 
 
Do you have a "scoville" rating on that Scotch Bonnet?  I grow a small thin red pepper called a Thai Dragon.  It will set you on fire.  I can't imagine there not being local varieties that would top the Scoville chart.

I have grown Thai peppers as well and can also attest as to how insanely hot they are. 
 
Toltec:  Maybe the pepper varieties that you tried were toned down for local consumption.  Look for a package of seeds with Thai writing on it (more likely to a be a "Thai peppers for Thais" type strain.

nick, balut (duck egg) actually tastes as well as sounds delicious; it's how it looks that most people find revolting.

let us know when you've actually tried it Smile

I've enquired at every Asian food mart, Chinese restuarant and deli but none of them sell it Thumbs Down

Thai peppers are called Bird's Eye Chilli Peppers, they're pretty standard throughout the country. Hot for most people, but I was talking about cooking a Phall.
