Hot Pepper Comparison Chart

Below is a list of Chile peppers and their Scoville Heat Units. Due to variations in growing conditions, soil and weather, peppers tend to vary between the lower and upper levels listed, but can go beyond them.

An easy method for determining pepper hotness is Craig's Pepper Hotness scale.
The numbers indicate that how many ounces of salsa will have a detectable level of hotness when one ounce of pepper pods are added.

Generally red fresh fruit are 2-3x hotter than green fruit,
and dried pods are usually 2-10x hotter than fresh pods.

The Scoville Heat Scale.The Scoville scale is a measure of the 'hotness' of a chilli pepper or anything derived from chilli peppers, i.e. hot sauce. The scale is named after Wilbur Scoville who developed the test in 1912, for more information see Measuring Chilli Heat.
