Chump-O-Meter: Heat Level 7. Click to learn more!

Traditionally chilli peppers’ spice level is measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHU). While we will try give a SHU estimates for most of our chilli seeds, we will also be using the Chump-o-Meter which we believe will give a better indication of the amount of heat to expect!

1 on the Chump-O-Meter has practically no spice to it and includes chilli peppers like the Ramiro, Bell Pepper and the Trinidad Perfume.

2 and 3 will be chillies like the Jalapeno, Cayenne and Poblano. These will get your tastebuds tingling from the spice.

4, 5 and 6 include Thai Chillies, Piri Piri and Ring of Fire. You can certainly feel the heat with these ones and will bring on the sweat!

7 and 8 is where things really start to heat up and include chillies like the Habanero, Scotch Bonnet and Fatali. Definitely for the more adventurous!

9 and 10 is where Superhots start to make an appearance, like the Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper), 7Pot Primo and Dorset Naga. Typically at or above 1 million scoville, and will be a challenge for most people!

11 is reserved for the hottest of the hots. Primotali Chocolate and the 7Pot Bubblegum definitely have this rating! These chillies are well above a million scoville and need to be handled with caution!
