Bhut Jolokia-(Capsicum chinense)-The Bhut Jolokia is one of the hottest chiles in the world. Also known as the Ghost pepper. Tested in 2006 by Dr. Paul Bosland of New Mexico State University it broke the previous heat record held by the Red Savina. The Red Savina was found at 577,000 Scoville units in a single test in the early 1990’s. Multiple tests done by Dr. Bosland and other labs came in at over 1,047,000 Scoville units and it was promptly awarded the new Guinness Record for chile heat. The Bhut Jolokia also know as the Ghost Chile comes from the northeastern provinces of India just north of Bangladesh. Most of it today is grown commercially in Assam, India. It is also called by many other names like Naga Jolokia, Bih Jolokia and Ghost pepper. It is called the Ghost by natives because after eating the Ghost chile some are devastated by the heat and look so bad as if they have seen a ghost! ATTENTION YOU ARE BUYING PEPPER POWDER.
