There are many chile heads who believe this is one of those chillis that’s more flavorful dried than fresh as the drying process tends to really bring out the flavor.

40) Candy Cane Red

With its green and white variegated foliage and its two-tone fruits, ‘Candy Cane Red’ is certainly the most decorative sweet pepper on the market. The elongated fruits are crisp and sweet, measuring 3 ½ to 4 inches (9 to 10 cm) in length. They can be eaten immature at the green and white stage, 40–45 days after transplanting, or mature when fully red, 60–65 days after transplanting. The plant reaches 18 to 24 inches (45–60 cm) in height and 12 to 18 inches (30 to 45 cm) in diameter. Plant it in rich soil in full sun. Annual.  No heat

41) Corno di Torro Rosso

Pepper Corno di Toro. Horn of the Bull. Red. 8" long, 2-3 inches wide. Very sweet pepper with thin skin and thick walls. Brilliant red when ripe. Ideal to stuff, fry or grill. Bears heavily. 65 days green, 75-85 days red. 200+ seeds.

This is an absolute winner.

 

 

Measuring the chillis heat

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 actually a measure of the concentration of the chemical compound capsaicin which is the active component that produces the heat sensation for humans.

The hotness is measured in SHU’s  ie Scoville Heat Units

Ie the hottest is 2,200,000 SHU’s  (that’s 2.2 million SHU’s)

A habanero which is pretty hot for most is about 450,000 SHU’s max

And a Jalapeno is around 5,000

Note the Carolina Reaper at 2.2 million SHU’s rates with pepper spray on the chart below.

 

42) Trinidad Scorpion Moruga

"You take a bite. It doesn't seem so bad, and then it builds and it builds and it builds. So it is quite nasty.

Aside from the heat, the Trinidad moruga scorpion has a tender fruit-like flavor, which makes it a sweet-hot combination. The pepper can be grown from seeds in most parts of the world. I The Trinidad moruga scorpion (Capsicum chinense) is native to the district of Moruga in Trinidad and Tobago. On February 13, 2012, New Mexico State University's Chile Pepper Institute identified the Trinidad moruga scorpion as the hottest chili in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs) and individual plants with a heat of more than 2 million SHUs. According to the Chile Pepper Institute, the previous record holder was the Bhut jolokia of India, as it never accepted the Infinity chili and Naga Viper pepper that were previous record holders per Guinness World Records. The current world record holder is the Carolina Reaper with 2.2million SHU.

43) Hungarian Wax chilli

Yellow to red.

Weighing in on the mild side at 2500 to 8000 Scoville units, the Hungarian Wax is a variety of paprika pepper. Developed in Hungary, home of paprika, another notable pepper product. These peppers are also known as hot yellow peppers or hot wax peppers. Hungarian wax peppers can be used in a variety of ways in cooking or sliced or kept in brine.

44) Scorpion Butch T   

The Trinidad scorpion 'Butch T' pepper is a Capsicum chinense cultivar that is among the most piquant peppers in the world. It is derived from the Trinidad scorpion, which is indigenous to Trinidad and Tobago. It was named by Neil Smith from The Hippy Seed Company, after he got the seeds originally from Butch Taylor (the owner of Zydeco Farms in Woodville/Crosby, Mississippi, and a hot sauce company) who is responsible for propagating the pepper's seeds. The "scorpion" peppers are referred to as such because the pointed end of the pepper is said to resemble a scorpion's stinger.

The Trinidad scorpion 'Butch T' pepper was, for three years, ranked the most pungent ("hot") pepper in the world according to Guinness World Records. A laboratory test conducted in March 2011 measured a specimen at 1,463,700 Scoville heat units, officially ranking it the hottest pepper in the world at that time. One possible secret to the chilli’s heat, according to a cultivator of the pepper, is fertilizing the soil with the liquid runoff of a worm farm. In August 2013, Guinness World Records recognized the Carolina Reaper as the hottest pepper in the world, at 1,569,300 SHU.

 

45) Bahamian Goat chilli    

The Bahamian goat is a little bit of a Scoville unit mystery.  Some claim its range is the same as its habanero and Scotch bonnet relatives (100,000 to 350,000 Scoville heat units). Others say that its bottom range never goes so low, stopping at 250,000 SHU. Still others pronounce scorching hot heat from this peach of a chili – kickin’ it at near 600,000 SHU, a similar heat to a Red Savina or chocolate habanero.

Regardless, it’s safe to say the goat pepper is hot. At least as hot as the habanero, with the potential for much more. Comparing it to our jalapeño reference point – it’s 12 to 140 times hotter, depending on the luck of the draw due to the variances in heat between both peppers

 

46) Fatalii Yellow              

Originally from the Americas, like all chilli species, the specific variety known as Fatalii was 'discovered' and is thought to have developed in Central Africa.[1] Since commerce between the Americas and Africa has spanned some four centuries or more, this is uncontroversial.

The plants typically grow 20 to 25 inches (51–64 cm) in height, but may reach 3 feet (0.91 m) or taller under optimal growing conditions, and plant distance should be about the same. The pendant pods get 2.5 to 3.5 inches (6.4–8.9 cm) long and about 0.75 to 1.5 inches (1.9–3.8 cm) wide. From a pale green, the most common variety matures to a bright yellow. Less common are red, chocolate and white Fataliis. The red version of Fatalii apparently has a somewhat different flavor and shorter, wider pods, maturing from medium green to dark red but the strain is unstable, throwing yellow and orange fruit.[2] The white Fatalii tastes very like the standard yellow version, but lighter and more citrusy, and has similar heat, perhaps a fraction less.

 

47) Devils Tongue (chocolate)

Hot, hot, hot chilli, fantastic flavour and great heat level. This is good eaten fresh in salad or used in a chilli.  The pods are long, 2 to 3 inches by 1 to 1.5 inches wide. Turns from green to chocolate. This chilli is outrageously hot! Capsicum chinense

 

48)  Bulawayo Bullet

The Bulawayo Bullet comes from Bulawayo, southern Zimbabwe. Definitely hottish It is very similar to the South African birds eye chilli and just as hot                      

49)   Thai Dragon     

Thai Dragon peppers grow to 3 to 4 inches long and start out green and mature to a bright red. They grow on a short, bushy plant, giving rise to clusters of upright peppers.

They are often used indoors or along garden borders outdoors because of their decorative appeal. The plants are incredibly prolific and have a strong, well-branched habit to support the heavy fruit set. Each plant can produce up to 200 chilis.

 

50) Hungarian Paprika

 Originating, like all chili peppers, in the Americas, paprika peppers are now strongly associated with Hungarian cuisine. Paprika can range in flavour from mild and sweet to fiery hot, and is used heavily in Eastern European cooking. This Hungarian paprika is pretty hot 

51) Padrón peppers  are a variety of peppers from the municipality of Padrón in the province of A CoruñaGalicia, north western Spain.] These are small peppers (about 5 cm long), with a color ranging from bright green to yellowish green, and occasionally red. Their peculiarity lies on the fact that, while their taste is usually mild, a minority (10-25%) are particularly hot. Whether a given pepper ends up being hot or mild depends on the amount of water and sunlight it receives during its growth, in addition to temperature. It's said that solely watering the soil of the plant is likely to produce milder pimentos, whilst watering the whole plant, leaves and stalks included, produces peppers of the spicier variety.

The peppers are customarily fried in oil and served as tapas.

 

52) Anaheim peppers

'Anaheim' peppers are commonly grown outside of New Mexico, and are related to the 'New Mexico No. 6 and 9', but when grown out of state, they have a higher variability rate.

Green chillis are served roasted and peeled, whole or diced, and in various sauces. The most common uses for these diced chillis, or sauces, is in enchiladas, burritos, burgers, French fries, or rice. They are also served whole raw or as fried or baked chile rellenos. New Mexican-style chile rellenos follow the much more traditional Mexican technique of being covered with egg batter and fried, although variations and casseroles do exist.

In addition to local restaurants, many national food chains such as McDonald's and Jack in the Box offer locally grown green chile on many of their menu items in New Mexico.

 

53) Aji Norteno is a Capsicum Baccatum from Peru. The name Aji Norteno means “Northern Aji”. It got this name, because it’s very popular in the northern coastal valleys of Peru. The plant grows to over 2 metre in a pot and imagine how big it will be, if you plant it in the ground. It’s an amazing producer of 3 to 4 inch long pendant pods. The pods are fairly thin walled and mature from yellow to red and also orange.The Vir and Lambayeque valleys in Peru are the main production areas for this variety. People from Northern pledge that the Aji Norteno has a “better northern taste.” Commonly eaten fresh with seafood, but it would be great in salads and if you aren’t into insane heat, this would be a great choice. An amazing chilli variety, easy to grow, a good producer of medium hot pods with an apple flavour.Flavour wise: Taste like a green apple without the bitterness.

Heat wise: Mid heat

54) Abhu Dhabi Red cherry peppers

Cherry Bomb is an early, high yielding hot red cherry pepper when mature producing high yields of 6 ½ cm cherry like 
globular fruits. The pods have thick walls and a mild heat making them ideal for fresh use or pickling. The pendant 
fruiting characteristic along with its semi-compact size, allows for easy harvest of the fruit. Heat rating of 2,500-5,000 Scoville

54) Trinidad Perfume on Amazon (no heat)  When you hear the term ”Trinidad” in relation to chilli peppers, a world of super-hots come to mind: the super-fiery Trinidad Moruga scorpion or one of its Caribbean relatives like the extra-hot Habanero or Scotch bonnet. But in the case of the Trinidad Perfume, while the pepper carries a similar “gonna burn you up” look, its heat is far from it – it’s more akin to a bell pepper in fieriness than a scorpion pepper. Yet the Trinidad Perfume still carries that delicious fruitiness those super-hots are known for, making this chilli a perfect low-heat option for tropical salsas and hot sauces.

 56) Chipotle Chilli

Most chipotle chilis are produced in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua. The variety of chipotle grown there is known as a morita (Spanish for small mulberry). In central and southern Mexico, chipotle chilis are known as chile mecochile ahumado, or típico.

CHIPOTLE

Chipotle is not really a pod type, but we would be remiss if we did not mention it here. The chipotle is a smoked red ripe jalapeño. These peppers lend a wonderful smoky flavour to sauces. They’re usually canned in adobo sauce or sold dry.

Chipotles are purchased in numerous forms: chipotle powder, chipotle pods, chipotles en adobo in a can, concentrated chipotle base and wet chipotle meat marinade.

 

 57) Hong Kong chilli

The seeds come from India and grow into a sturdy plant of about 1.7 metres. The pods are fleshy inside and very juicy with a fruity taste. Mild at 12,000 shu.

58) Explosive Ember

A beautiful ornamental chilli pepper. With its dark purple leaves and purple peppers this plant is very attractive. The 2.5 cm long peppers colour during ripening from dark purple to orange and end up bright red. An eye catcher for every garden. Its compact size (25-35 cm) makes it very suitable for pots.

Name: Explosive Ember

Species: Capsicum Annuum

 

59) Cherry Bomb

Boy, the Cherry Bomb pepper comes loaded with a lot of expectation due to its moniker. You may be thinking mouth explosion! But, really, this hybrid chilli carries more of a modest boom, about the heat of a milder jalapeño pepper. It’s very eatable heat for those that enjoy spicy food, and it’s a wonderful step-up from the milder “cherry” pepper, the pimento. It’s terrific stuffed or pickled, so it’s a unique alternative to jalapeños for many of your favourite stuffed popper recipes. How hot are Cherry  Bomb peppers? Their Scoville Scale range falls at the very bottom of medium heat peppers, from 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville heat units. That puts it in line with jalapeño peppers, but jalapeños do have the potential of carrying quite a bit more heat (up to 8,000 SHU). This level of spiciness is well in the family-friendly zone for most eaters who can handle a moderate amount of spicy food.

60) Purple Tiger                                coming soon

 CAPSICUM ANNUUM  The Purple Tiger Chilli originates from the USA and is one of our favourite plants. It’s such beautiful plant with green, white and purple variegated leaves. It grows to 30 – 40 cm tall and would be a great choice for the space challenged.

The pods start off green, then purple (with amazing striping) and ends up a pretty red.  It’s also known as Trifetti and Variegata. The variety is one of a kind with a medium heat, even very enjoyable and to eat. Perfect for any cooking where the heat won’t overtake the flavour of the dish.

61) Trinidad 7 Pot Douglah              got a few small ones. 

Scoville heat units (SHU): 923,889 – 1,853,986
Jalapeño reference point: 109 to 742 times hotter
Origin: Trinidad The 7 Pot Douglah (a.k.a. the chocolate 7 Pot) is without a doubt one of the hottest peppers in the world, though its looks and flavour provide a unique twist to the top end of the pepper scale. It ages to a chocolatey brown hue instead of the typical shock red, with a flavour that’s not only fruity sweet, but also a little nutty. It’s a unique pepper in colours and taste – that is, if you can get past the scorching heat that at its peak blows most other 
7 Pot peppers out of the water.

 62) Jalapeno Giant               coming soon     This Jalapeno is one of the largest, if not the largest, Jalapeno there is. The peppers can be more than 10 cm long and are hot. They are perfect for stuffing. The plant grows easily and is also suitable for pots.

Name: Jalapeno Giant

Species: Capsicum Annuum
