    One of the spiciest pepper in the world is the Diablo ***** pepper, which is native to southern Ecuador. It has been known to cause nosebleeds for those who consume it.

    Another of the spiciest pepper in the world is the Orange Habanero. Both of these peppers rate 100,000 to 300,000 on the Scoville scale.

    Another of the hottest pepper I can find is the Caribbean Red Habanero which rates 400,000+ on the Scoville Scale.

    But the hottest chile pepper that I could actually find (and was not a hoax) made it into the Guiness Book Of World Records as the world’s hottest Chile Pepper: Red Savina Habanero which rates at over 577,000 Scoville units, which is over 50 times hotter than the common JalapeƱo. The jalapeno is only rates between 2,500 – 8,000 units on the Scoville scale.

    Scoville scale

    The Scoville scale is a measure of the “hotness” of a chili pepper.

    Scoville Organoleptic Test

    Scoville’s original method for testing hotness was called the Scoville Organoleptic Test, which he developed in 1912. As originally devised, a solution of the pepper extract is diluted in sugar water until the “heat” is no longer detectable to a panel of (usually five) tasters; the degree of dilution gives its measure on the Scoville scale. Thus a sweet pepper or a bell pepper, containing no capsaicin at all, has a Scoville rating of zero, meaning no heat detectable even undiluted. Conversely, the hottest chiles, such as habaneros, have a rating of 300,000 or more, indicating that their extract has to be diluted 300,000-fold before the capsaicin present is undetectable. The greatest weakness of the Scoville Organoleptic Test is its imprecision, because it relies on human subjectivity.

    habanero 57 up, 22 down

    The Red Savina Habanero is the hottest pepper in the world. The “naga jalokia” pepper is just a rumor, an urban myth. If you google “naga jalokia” with the quotemarks, it turns up a page SPECIFICALLY detailing how it’s a hoax. Anyone that buys into this garbage is just another cause to the myth.

    The red savina is the hottest. No question. The hottest technical sauce (and not capscium extract) out now is “The Source”, but the hottest sauce overall is Blair’s 6AM sauce.

    Naga Jolokia is the hottest pepper in the world rated at a little over 1,000,000 on the Scoville scale, a scale that rates the heat of the pepper. The Jalapeno only rates at 2500 to 10,000 on the Scoville scale, which makes the Jalapeno look like a sweet tart

    Definitely not a Jalapeno! Here is the heat scale for all of the hot peppers.

    The Red Savino Habanero is the hottest.

    peruvian death pepper. Puruvian purple pepper, also known as the Hungarian Death, the existance of this said pepper is said to be questionable, even nonexistant, til I found out about it on Food Television. People who buy a jar of Puruvian Death Pepper hot sauce have to sign a paper to say that the store is not to be held responsible for what happens when you use the hot sauce. It’s BRUTAL stuff. I want to try it… mmm…..

    Habannaro and Scotch Bonnets–Scotch Bonnets are the hottest, I think. Jalapenos are mild in comparison.
