Product Description

Bhut Jolokia Pepper: In fall of 2006, the Guinness Book of Records confirmed that New Mexico State University Regent s Professor Paul Bosland had indeed discovered the world s hottest chile pepper, Bhut Jolokia. Bhut Jolokia, at 1,001,304 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), is nearly twice as hot as Red Savina, the chile pepper variety it replaces as the world s hottest. A New Mexico green chile contains about 1,500 SHUs and an average jalapeno measures at about 10,000 SHUs.

The name Bhut Jolokia translates as ghost chile, Bosland said, "it s because the chile is so hot, you give up the ghost when you eat it!

Other Names: Bhut Jolokia, Ghost Chili, Ghost Pepper, Naga Morich

Caution: The fruits of this chile variety are extremely hot. It is advised to wear gloves when handling the peppers, keep them away from children, and thoroughly clean all kitchen utensils like cutting boards, knives etc. When grinding dreid Jolokias, wear a breathing mask, protect your eyes. Don't touch any sensitive parts before cleaning your hands thoroughly first. And use these peppers sparingly - it is always easier to kick up the heat of a dish than toning it down.

The Bhut Jolokia is a naturally-occurring interspecies hybrid from the Assam region of northeastern India. Hence the color, shape, size, texture and heat may vary. It should also be grown isolated from other peppers for the hottest fruit.
