Nagu Jolokia hot pepper- can I buy it inToronto

I am looking for a pepper called Nagu Jolokia hot pepper. Apparently it can be purchased in Toronto as a fresh pepper. It is used in Indian cuisine. My nephew would really like to buy some.

The Naga Jolokia (also known as Bhut Jolokia, Ghost Chili, Ghost Pepper, Naga Morich) is a chili pepper that grows primarily in Assam state of India, but also in northeastern India (Nagaland, Manipur), Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. In 2007, it was confirmed by Guinness World Records to be the hottest chili in the world, replacing the Red Savina. Disagreement has arisen on whether it is a Capsicum frutescens or a Capsicum chinense. The Indians claim it is a C. frutescens,[1] but recent DNA tests have found that it is an interspecies hybrid, mostly C. chinense with some C. frutescens genes.[2
The link to Wikipedia - shows a photograph of the pepper.

Ten Feet Tall - great service, food, atmosphere

I had the pleasure of going to Ten Feet Tall. It is a great place. It is really kid friendly - we had a three and a half year old with us. The adults had a great time too.
The tables are spaced - so you can enjoy yourself.
The menus are really neat - record covers, the menu is varied - the yam fries are great!!!
All our food was really good. Nice choice available.
The music is a really nice mix.
The person who was our server, Sean, was great. Attentive - checked on our food,
answered questions about the menu and catered to the three and half year old - she got her drink in a fancy glass. Ketchup was delivered without asking - he was sure she would like it with her grilled cheese. I had a special request and he looked after it - no problem.
He is very friendly and a great server. Thank you Sean!
I would recommend Ten Feet Tall for the service, food, music and the decor is really interesting too. Great spot on the Danforth.
We had a really nice evening!
Thank you.
