We Have Our Share Of Scovies Too
The Scovie Awards evolved from the National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show after 1996 when the contest was called “The Fiery Foods Challenge.” Originally, it was part of the show and even had a People’s Choice Award that was voted on by the general public. “The Scovie Awards” are name in honor of the memory of Wilbur Scoville, the scientist who invented the Scoville Organoleptic Test in 1912 to determine the heat scale of chile peppers.

Some Of Our 2023 Crop Picked On October 4, 2023
our fresh ghost peppers
Fresh Bhut Jolokia Ghost Peppers
Referencing the ghost pepper against a Jalapeño reference point, many people feel the jalapeño is rather hot, but in the world of the Scoville scale, it’s a relatively mild to medium chili pepper at about 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville heat units. Now multiply the jalapeños heat by up to 400 and that is the potential of ghost pepper at over 855,000 Scoville heat units. No lie, it’s so spicy that the Indian army has made it into military-grade smoke bombs and local residents smear the ghost pepper on fences and walls to keep wild elephants from entering certain areas.

our fresh scorpion peppers
Fresh Trinidad Scorpion Peppers
Like all super-hots of this caliber, the Trinidad Scorpion is like a culinary solar flare – not to be eaten raw or without a lot of dilution. They can reach just above 1.4 million Scoville heat units at their peak. There are many Scorpions that fall within the ghost pepper heat range of 800,000 to 1,000,000 Scoville heat units. Compared to a Jalapeño as a reference point, that’s about 585 times hotter! The Scorpion can reach near Carolina Reaper heights – close to 2 million Scoville heat units, though that’s not the norm. They tend to sit around 1.2 to 1.3 million Scoville heat units more often than not, and they rarely fall below 1.2 million. Take extreme caution in their handling.

our fresh reaper peppers
Fresh Carolina Reaper Peppers
The Carolina Reaper is the current official hottest pepper in the world. How hot? With a heat range from 1,400,000 to 2,200,000 Scoville heat units, the Reaper is hotter than many defensive pepper sprays and it dwarfs many of the other super-hots among the hottest chilies. The Carolina Reaper is more than 880 times hotter than a Jalapeno! That’s insanity in edible form. Yet, behind this extreme super-heat is a surprising sweetness that’s perfect for enhancing hot sauces and other spicy foods.

our dried reaper peppers

The Scoville Scale

Scoville Heat Units
Measures the heat level in all kinds of peppers from sweet bell peppers to the Carolina Reaper, which can hit above 2 million Sovile Heat Units. A few of the peppers on the high end of the scale are not for human consumption as they are just way too hot to eat.

Even so, chili pepper aficionados are locked in intense rivalry to create the world's hottest pepper. Since 2011, when the competition began to heat up (pun intended), the title of hottest pepper has changed hands a number of times as new crosses and genetic mutations have emerged. In 2013, the Carolina Reaper was named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's hottest pepper and peaks at 2,200,000 Scoville heat units.
