THE GHOST PEPPER EXPLAINED

THE GHOST PEPPER EXPLAINED

One of the more frequent questions we receive around this time of year is,  “Is the ghost pepper real?” and the answer is, “Yes!” While the name might sound like an urban legend spawned on some late night subreddit , it is very real and very much alive. Native to India, this ghost is a cross between two different species of chili pepper. It is sometimes referred to by its less popular and significantly less supernatural sounding names, the hot jolokia or the red naga chilli.

How Hot Is the Ghost Chile Pepper?

The ghost chili pepper is the hottest pepper in the world and has held the “Guinness Book of World Records” title since 2013. The spiciness of foods is measured by a system called the Scoville Scale. The rating tells how many units of water are needed to neutralize the heat from a particular food. The Scoville ratings for the ghost chile ranges between 330,000 to 1,532,310, depending on the pepper sampled. That means that on the Scoville scale, its rating is more than 10 times hotter than jalapeno peppers and more than 3 times hotter than habanero peppers.
