The Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper) has a very interesting history. In 2006, researchers from the University of Assam in India had it analyzed by the Chili Pepper Institute in New Mexico, since it was reputed to be unusually strong. In 2007, the Bhut Jolokia will indeed be consecrated the strongest pepper on earth by the Guinness Book of Records, crossing the symbolic threshold of 1,000,000 scoville units. It is the first “Super hot” pepper to have been listed. Its origin in India remains unclear, since chillies are not native to this region. Many believe that it is the descendant of peppers from Trinidad and Tobago and that it was introduced by the British in the 19th century. It is an extremely hot pepper with floral and fruity notes. To be used in small quantities with initiated people.
