Chili Pepper and Hot Sauce Scoville Scale
THE ORIGINAL SCOVILLE SCALE
Welcome to the Original Scoville Scale. Here you can find everything about Scoville and of course the largest Scoville Scale for Chili Peppers and Hot Sauce available in the World Wide Web. Our goal is to list all Chili Peppers and Hot Sauces with their degree of pugency and their scoville value. Depending on the type and variety, chili peppers differ considerably in their pungency.
So there are species with no pungency such as bell peppers, varieties with a slight pungency such as Jalapeños, but also very hot chili peppers such as Habanero, Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper) or Carolina Reaper. These super hot varieties are all varieties of the species Capsicum chinense. Varieties of the genus Capsicum chinense like Trinidad Moruga Scorpion or HP22B (Carolina Reaper) are one of the hottest chili cultivars in the world with a pungency of up to more than 2 million Scoville Heat Units.
