The Chile Manという有名なグロワー／データベース作成者がNaga Morichとして紹介している頃、 別にPepper's by PostというネットショップをやっているJoy and Michael Michaudという2人が、自分達のバージョンに“Dorset Naga”と命名し、それを自らのショップの目玉として実や種の通信販売を行っているんだそうです。
－Hotter than the Hottest? Mark McMullan a.k.a. "The Chile Man" advertises "Naga Morich", offering peppers and seeds (Mark also runs a remarkable Chile Database). Joy and Michael Michaud ("Peppers by Post") are promoting their version as "Dorset Naga", also selling pods and seeds as a mail order business. And in Naga Jolokia's country of origin, there's Frontal Agritech, offering the dried fiery pods, grown on their own fields. Last but not least, there's the Chile Pepper Institute, which offers seeds of the Bhut Jolokia chile. Mutual incentive is most likely the desire to be listed in the Guinness World Records, associated with the new "World's Hottest Pepper."
本来前述のショップで売られている独占ネーミングのDorset NagaがReimerで売られてるのもよく判らんし、Naga Morichにしても同じですね。 まあ、唐辛子のネーミングに関してはもう皆がウンザリしてる部分でもあります。 デーブのオッサン達も結構ゲンナリしてるぽ、です。 There was even rumor that one party intended to file "their" Naga Jolokia version under the PVP. That's short for Plant Variety Protection Act - sort of a patent and the method Garcia chose to make it so hard for the rest of the world to legally obtain pure Red Savina seeds. As Dave pointed out, this should be impossible with any Jolokia incarnation, as all the various parties did was selecting, not real breeding. Still we wouldn't be surprised at all to see a "Naples Naga" or a "Moscow Morich" ("world's hottest", of course) popping up in the future, even if only on Ebay ;-)
