Bhut Jolokia

A former world record holder, the Bhut Jolokia is super hot chilli that measures in at over 1 million Scoville Heat Units! Also known as the ‘ghost pepper’.

The Bhut Jolokia was the world's hottest chilli between 2007-2011, measuring in at over one million Scoville heat units (SHUs) in replicated tests at the New Mexico State University. It is also commonly known as the 'ghost chilli' or 'ghost pepper'.

The Bhut Jolokia comes in red, yellow and chocolate; the red Bhut is considered to be fairly bitter, whilst the chocolate Bhut is sweeter in flavour and the yellow fruitier.

Bhuts are renowned for their 'slow burn' - with the heat taking about 30 seconds to kick in, and sticking around for as long as 30 minutes.

The Bhut Jolokia is used in Chilliman's Ghost Pepper Sauce.
