Question:

What is the hottest pepper in the world and what is the name of the scale used to measure the heat of a pepper?

Answer:

In replicated tests of Scoville heat units (SHUs), Bhut Jolokia reached one million SHUs, almost double the SHUs of Red Savina, which measured a mere 577,000. The name Bhut Jolokia translates as 'ghost chile,' I think it's because the chile is so hot, you give up the ghost when you eat it! Thanks for asking AnswerParty!
