Habanero peppers are among the hottest chili peppers in the world. Measuring in between 80,000 - 600,000 Scoville Units,I learn smearing the lips with milk or yogurt would take down the burn!

When I was in NTU in Singapore, a neighbor Mr Wong went to America and gave me a pod. I grew and had 100s of fruits. We had chilli parties, and even an Indian friend who boasted to eat very hot food admitted defeat.

Sadly, the pod had no future generation.

Was the hottest chilli when I grew it 15 years ago. But lost its crown.
