HEAT LEVEL: 10/10
The Bhut Jolokia Chilli, also known as the Ghost Pepper, Red Naga, and Naga Jolokia, originates from the Indian states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Nagaland and Manipur. Similar in flavour to the Habanero, but with more of a citrus after taste, these peppers are at their best in pork and fish dishes. They are also great in curries, salsas, and sauces.
The Ghost Naga is the 2007 World Record holder, and is over 400 times hotter than Tabasco Sauce. They have been measured at over 1000,000 SHU’s, however, they have a wide variety of heat levels per pepper. Typically you can expect your Ghost Naga to reach anywhere between 100,000 SHU’s and 500,000 SHU’s, but expect some to be less, and some to be much more.
Extremely hot product – always wash hands thoroughly after use. (Seriously, the Indian Government use Ghost Naga extract in hand grenades & smoke bombs to flush out terrorists, and keep wild elephants at a distance! This chilli is HOT!)
