Pepper-Hot Chili Pepper Seeds

Capsicum annuum

For centuries people have known that not all hot chili peppers were created equal. Some were much hotter than others. Around 1912 Wilbur Scoville discovered a rather complicated way to measure the heat of the peppers. In today's world, we know the spiciness of a pepper depends on how much capsaicin it containes. However in the honor of his contributions, the heat of peppers are still measured in Scoville Units. A Scoville Unit is a measurement of capsaicin level or heat for a variety of pepper. Note that when peppers are dehydrated they tend to increase in Heat by about 10 times.
