Chile Peppers Scoville Scale

This is a highlight of some of the most common and favorite chiles in the world. Each pepper is listed in order of Scoville Heat Units or SHU's (with the hottest chiles on top). The higher up on the Scoville Heat Scale the pepper is the hotter it is. The Scoville rating is listed after each pepper. Just click on a pepper to find out more about each one, its origin and its uses in the world of cooking.

I'm currently putting these pepper pages together. Stay tuned. Each pepper will get its own page...
