When asked, most of the people would say that the greatest pepper in the world could be the Habanero pepper. Much to their surprise, this is not the case. The hottest pepper on the planet, a pepper almost two times as hot as a habanero, a pepper so potent a small sprinkling can give you begging for water, bread, a glass of milk, anything, is called the Bhut Jolokia.

This pepper was just introduced to the Civilized world in the last decade, making its first known appearance in 2000. It absolutely was originally grown in regions of India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, and dates back hundreds of years in these locations.

The Bhut Jolokia goes by a wide variety of alternative names, some of them being ghost chili, king chili, naga jolokia, and naga morich. What they are have been translated into many different languages, one of which is King Cobra Chili, denoted the power and poisonous modify the chili can have on a person.

The Scoville scale is the current method used for determining the "hotness" of a pepper. The Scoville scale measures the volume of heat in a pepper by diluting the pepper in sugar water until no quantity of heat is observable any longer. While the hottest of Habanero peppers are in about 350,00-580,000 units for the Scoville scale, the Bhut Jolokia rates about 855,000-1,050,000 units.


A substance called capsaicin is responsible for creating the heat in chili peppers, which is highly concentrated inside the fleshy white interior of the pepper, surrounding the seeds. This is the reason many people remove the "guts" of peppers before cooking together, or simply add a few seeds to give the dish that extra kick.

Capsaicin in addition has shown to have very positive effects on your health. There are various medicines and creams designed to use capsaicin because of its effect on your nervous system. Specific problems like arthritis, psoriasis, and poison oak and ivy have been treated with capsaicin, while more generally issues like a sore throat, depression and overall discomfort have been assuaged because of the use of capsaicin from peppers.

In case you are still skeptical of this pepper's power, feel free to give it a try for yourself. You will be amazed!
