SCOVILLE HEAT UNITS: 923,889 – 1,853,986 SHU
The 7 Pot Douglah is an extremely hot pepper from Trinidad. It’s skin is notably dark chocolate brown and somewhat pimpled. It starts off green but matures to a rich brown. It is one of the Hottest Peppers in the World.
Aside from the color, it looks very much like other superhot chili peppers, roughly habanero shaped, about two inches long.
How Hot is the 7 Pot Douglah?
The 7 Pot Douglah measures in at between 923,889 – 1,853,986 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), so it is definitely a scorcher. A jalapeno pepper measures in at between 2,500 – 8,000 Scoville Heat Units, and a Habanero Pepper measures in at around 300,000, so that should give you a good idea of the overall heat.
So, the hottest 7 Pot Douglas is about 232 times hotter than the hottest jalapeno pepper and more than 5 times a very hot habanero pepper. Compare them to the mighty hot ghost pepper and you’ll find them nearly twice as hot.
