Get ready to set your mouth on fire. The UK's first pick-your-own-chilli farm in Bedfordshire offers a day of testing your taste buds at this three-acre site packed with 10,000 chilli plants. Armed with a wheel barrel, customers can fill up on these spicy peppers for only 20 pence per pluck. Also, for customers daring enough to try two of the world's hottest peppers - the Dorset Naga and the Bhut Jolokia - goggles and gloves are supplied. These two hot peppers are reportedly more than thirty times hotter than Tabasco sauce and shouldn't be consumed raw without plans for a hospital visit, according to one of the owners. Milder chillies include the Anaheim, the Santa Fei, the cherry bomb, and the Padron. The chilli harvest runs from June to December.
