The Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia)

In 2007, Guiness Book of World Records, certified that the Ghost Pepper was the worlds hottest chili pepper at over 1,000,000 Scolville (SHU). Tabasco sauce is typically 2,500-5,000 SHU.

One of our crazy customers actually ate one of the Bhut Jolokia peppers growing in the showroom.

In 2012 the Ghost Pepper was superseded by the Trinidad Scorpion. The Trinidad Scorpion measured over 2,000,000 SHU.

We just got a hold of some Trinidad Scorpion seeds. Who’s going to try one of those?
