PINATUBO – Hottest Chilli In Town

Allied Botanical Corporation claims to own the hottest chilli in town. Called Pinatubo, it is said to have 180,000 to 200,000 scoville heat units. Scoville index is the measure of hotness in chilli, named after Wilbur Scoville of the United States who developed the heat index in chillis. 
Thailand’s hot pepper is said to have only 90,000 scoville heat units while the ubiquitous Tingala has 120,000 scoville heat units, according to Mike Castillo, technical services specialist in food processing of Allied Botanical.

Mother’s Best and Mama Sita are among the companies that are processing hot chilli in the Philippines.

Pinatubo is said to be a very prolific variety.
