Ghost Chili

May 28, 2013

The ghost chili (or Naga Bhut Jolokia) is one of the hottest cultivated chilies. It had actually held the title until 2011 whereupon it was supplanted by the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion.

The ghost chili has a heat rating of over 1,000,000 SHU.  Pure capsaicin rates at 16,000,000 SHU,  and Tobasco sauce is under 5,000 SHU.
