The Bhut Jolokia (a.k.a. Naga Jolokia or Ghost) was the first chilli to be measured at over 1 million Scoville units – the first of the ‘super’ chillies. At that heat rating, they are 4 times hotter than the average Habanero or Scotch Bonnet but with the same fruity flavour. Please note: these chillies are imported from Assam, India. These chillies are very, very hot. We recommend taking precautions when handling them. Being three times hotter than an Orange Habanero, our suggestion for cooking with these chillies is to use a small amount to start with. If you want to try these chillies as a sauce, please see the Bhut Jolokia sauce.
