Bottom line: Bhut jolokia, a k a ghost pepper, is a joke among hard-core heat-seekers. Never mind that Collins says “Gastromasochists have likened it to molten lava, burning needles, and ‘the tip of my tongue being branded by a fine point of heated steel.’” The ghost rates a “mere” 462,400 Scoville Heat Units, the chile world’s gold-standard heat scale. A scotch bonnet is 200,000.

You will sweat and your knees will go weak! Ghost Pepper has more than a million SVU and jalapeno measures at about 10,000.
