I ate a habanero pepper once and it was the hottest thing I ever ate. The burn in my mouth was bad but the gut pain the day after was really bad. A cayenne pepper is about right for me or a hot jalapeno. I don't know what purpose those really hot peppers serve unless they are just a novelty.

The habanero is not just for heat; it's rather flavorful. If you remove the seeds and all the white part inside just like a lot of other peppers, it's not that hot.

I agree. I love habaneros, they are my favorite chili pepper.

Hot, with a fruity taste. YUM.

Think those are hot? Try a Bhut Jalokia aka Ghost Pepper. If you eat one your insides will turn into a ghost with nothing but a shadow left of them. I tried one once. I will never do that again. I ate a complete loaf of bread to try to absorb the oils and give me something to puke up to get it out. I left blisters on the inside of my cheeks and felt like more just inside the exit portal. If you think you can handle them, dare yourself to try. If you can eat one and keep it in you are a better man than I.

I agree the cayenne and habnero are great tasting and a bit on the warmer. I routinely eat them. One of my favorite summer lunches is a fresh picked tomato or 2, 3 or 4 cayennes, a chunk of extra sharp cheddar and a stack of ritz.

With the reasonable fire level ones, the fire really complements the flavor.

I've had a couple of those... I would never eat them straight up, but have added them to foods.

One medium size in an 8 quart cast iron pot full of chili is plenty hot. Many will event think that is too hot. Ghosts are like eating white phosphorus that ignites 4 seconds after getting damp from saliva.

I didn't know the seeds were supposed to be removed. Crushed cayenne pepper has seeds in it and I eat quite a bit of it in beans. I never know what I'm getting with jalapenos. Some are like bell pepper and the next one will be hot.

i've got some ghost pepper sauce. i put a drop on my tongue and thought i was gonna choke to death. it's great for about 1 drop per bowl of chili though, just gotta mix it up really well. it's got a real nice taste to it when used properly.

Nemo....the ghost pepper has since lost the "hottest pepper in the world" title.

The Carolina Reaper is currently #1.....

I'm not even sure if the Ghost pepper is in the top 10 hottest anymore.

That's CRAZY!

Haven't tried a Carolina Reaper yet, but I grow Trinidad Scorpions and Chocolate Ghosts every year. Those two pack a serious punch. Not sure I'd ever have a reason to want to go hotter.

Yep, love Cayenne flavor and eat them raw sometimes. They aren't very hot though compared to Habanero (which I also love).

Ghost pepper is pretty good as well, but my God, that stuff is brutal hot.

All of you are certifiably insane! In fact, your desire to eat these types of peppers, in my opinion, is justifiable reason to strip you of you rights and have you admitted into a maximum security insane asylum.

Do us all a favor...surrender your weapons and other personal belongings to authorities and RUN to the nearest asylum and commit yourself!!! Your decision to eat these types of peppers are obvious signs of you not being able to function in a normal society and we would all be safer if you all were locked up...forever.

LOL!!!


If you can't tell...I don't like spicy foods that much. I am a self proclaimed wimp when it comes to spicy foods. My three year old has a higher tolerance than I do.

Wow, I did not know that. Amazing what you can learn here. I looked a bit more.

The Bhut jolokia (Assamese: ভূূূত-জলকীয়া, IPA: [ˈbʱʊt.zɔˌlɔkiˌja]), is also known as Ghost pepper, Ghost chili, U-morok, Red naga, Naga jolokia and Bih jolokia. It is closely related to the Naga morich of Bangladesh and is an interspecific hybrid chili pepper cultivated in the Indian states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Nagaland and Manipur.[1][2] It is a hybrid of Capsicum chinense and Capsicum frutescens.[3]
In 2007, Guinness World Records certified that the Ghost pepper was the world's hottest chili pepper, 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. The Ghost chili is rated at more than 1 million Scoville heat units (SHUs). However, the Ghost chili was shortly superseded by the Infinity chili in 2011, followed by the Naga Viper, the Trinidad moruga scorpion in 2012, and the Carolina Reaper on August 7, 2013.[4]
