Scoville Ratings for Hot Peppers

Frog_01-1

I was in a conversation a few days ago and someone asked me which pepper was hotter than another.

There is a definitive comparison chart available called the Scoville Rating which lists hot peppers from around the world in comparative BTU strengths.

I remembered that I had written a post a while back about this and I grabbed my smartphone and after a few clicks there was my Post.

So, for posterity’s sake (and having a good storage place for the information) I decided to store the data here for future reference.
