Hot Pepper Test Results
Scoville Heat Test
The most accurate method to test peppers for hotness is the HPLC tests (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) which measures the pungency in Scoville Heat Units.
We are undertaking a major project and will be testing all the varieties to settled the "Hottest Pepper in the World" debate.
The hotness of the pepper pods can fluctuate greatly and are affected by temperature, moisture, soil, and type and amount of fertilizer used. We are growing all the peppers in the same environment to eliminate these variables, so we can get the most accurate results.
The Devil's Tongue is the
hottest pepper thus far, even hotter than the Habanero Red Savina™ PVP,
which currently holds the Guinness World Record as the hottest pepper. Check out all the hot ones under the Hottest Pepper in the World section.
Several hot ones include the Habanero Golden, Habanero Brown, Capsicum Chinense
#152452, Ecuador Hot, and the Jamaica Scotch Bonnet Yellow.
you see this symbol next to the items, it means they are over 100,000 Scoville units and are extremely hot! We found 38 varieties that are rated over 100,000 Scoville units in our test results. Order
the reports now to find out where they rank. More test results to come.
