Naga Morich

1,000,00 + Scoville Heat Scale

Often called the sister to the Ghost Pepper (aka Bhut Jolokia), but is more closely related to the Dorset Naga.  It is native to Eastern India and areas of Bangladesh.  It is grown to some degree in the Western World and one of the rarer of the super hot chili available in the United States or Europe.  Typically, cultivation is for the production of hot sauces although it is sometimes sold as a fresh pepper in Finland.

The Naga Morich grows as a small to medium shrub with large leaves.  Its fruit, which has been rated at over one million on the Scoville scale, is slightly smaller than the Ghost Pepper and has more of a rough texture with many pimples and ridges.
