Like many other spices, peppers and chilis are grown all over the world. With each type you get different flavors and heat. The Scoville scale (SHU) is often used to measure the heat of a pepper. Jalapeños measure 2,500 SHU, while the ghost Chili, considered the second hottest chili in the world, has a rating of 1,000,000+ SHU. We carry both extremes in our 25+ selection of peppers and chilis.
