Untill 2011 this was the hottest pepper in the world! With Scoville Units between 800 000 ~ 1,001 300 you can call this pepper nuclear. One drop of extract from this pepper needs one million drops of water to no longer be perceived as sharp. This chili pepper is a whopping 125 times hotter than a Jalapeno! This pepper comes from north-eastern India, particularly Assam, Nagaland and Manipur. Bhut Jolokia (or Naga Jolokia) is twice as hot as the previous champ, the Red Savina, and was recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s hottest pepper.
