The controversy over which is really the hottest pepper in the world continues. Some of the larger artisan hot sauce companies seem to be taking sides.

Christopher Phillips has been diagnosed with leukemia. One of the pioneers in the efforts to make rare pepper seeds available here in the United States, Christopher Phillips is why many of the peppers we grow are available.
