Before the “stronger” chili breeding frenzy set off, this pepper was the pinnacle for a relatively long time (2007-2011). Naga Jolokia, from the Bih Jolokia Assam region of India, is of course a hybrid variety created from a cross between Capsaicum chinese and Capsaicum frutescens. Naga Jolokia is circulating on the internet and has become known in the literature under many different names like Bhut Jolokia, Naga Jolokia, Naga Morich, but it is all the same species that is called by several names only due to regional differences. Official laboratory tests were performed by Chile’s Pepper Instutits, and its strength was first released in 2005, which was 1,001,304 SHU. Thus, Naga Jolokia was the first chili pepper in the world to exceed the magic of 1,000,000 Scoville. The fruit of the elongated Naga Jolokia chili changes from green to orange and then red during ripening, with an irregular surface and a slightly fruity aromatic taste.
