We have talked breifly in the forum about this pepper…the “Tezpurs” also known as the “naga jalokia”.... I have yet to find evidence on the net that this pepper even exists….So far the hottest “Known” pepper is the “Red Savina Habanero” which has tested an astonishing 577,000 Scoville Units. If this “Tezpurs” does exist, I would love to get my hands on it.

If anyone has “proof” of this pepper, I would love to see it…...I even googled it and hardley anything pops up.

Except for the RSH, the other peppers you mentioned were not documented here.

Stephen…I was just showing you that I found the website for the HOTTEST PEPPER IN THE WORLD.  GAH!

Also, are you sure you’re spelling it correctly?

The only site I came across that even really tries to go into detail is http://www.fiery-foods.com/dave/assam_chile2.asp but the pic they have just looks like a hibernero…

OMG…This is driving me nuts.  I think you’ve found every way to spell “habanero” incorrectly.

Stephen: It probably looks like a Habernero because it might be a “breed derivative” of said pepper.

From what I’ve been able to gather, the pepper itself is likely not a hoax.  It appears that there is a variety of a species of pepper grown in the Tezpur region (and it seems to be a different species than the habaneros).  The question is whether or not it really is that hot.  So far there’s only the one test giving it that high level, but then you have to keep in mind that the test that gave habaneros their high level also hasn’t been repeated.  There aren’t really any set standards for pepper hotness testing.

Ha! I have word…. Pavan talked to his wife about them, and apparently they are the same pepper she used in her homemade masalas, so she says they do exist. Pavan’s vowed to find some when he is there this fall since his wife knows where to get them, and that he’s going to get someone to jar it and slap a label on it so they can bring some back with them. I’ll let you know how they are. I think they’re gone between Thanksgiving and Xmas.

But then comes the “having to prove” they are the hottest…..now, I have tried Indian food before, and I am aware that it is spicey….I just find it hard to believe they would actually use an ingrediant that is so hot, it should be a novelty.
