Naga Viper

The Naga Viper chili was created by crossing the three hottest chilies in the world (including the ghost chili) by chili farmer and pub owner Gerald Fowler.  It measures at 1,359,000 units on the Scoville  scale, which is used to measure chili hotness, making it 270 times hotter than the Bhut Jolokia (just for comparison, jalapeño peppers measure only 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units).
