Red hot record...<br />
<br />
Tree of fire turns into pot of gold - Dorset Chilli farmer Joy Michaud is hoping she has set a new world record after collecting an astonshing 2407 chilli's from one bush at the weekend.<br />
<br />
Its been a bumper year for chilli's and farmer Joy Michaud has grown a 'tree of fire' with over two thousand of the worlds hottest on it.<br />
<br />
The average chilli 's heat is measured at 30,000 scovell's but the legendary Dorset Naga has been measured at 1.2 million scovel's.<br />
<br />
With that in mind great care has to be taken when handling the explosive crop.<br />
<br />
Joy said 'growing conditions have been perfect this year and  I have never seen a chilli tree this big before, its astonishing.'
