My Yellow 7 Pot Brain Strain
 
1 Attachment(s)
A large and frightening pepper. Weighs in at 1.2 million Scovilles.

I like those a lot, almost as much as the TS Moruga Yellow.

The 7potBSRed has a nice fruity tone to it.

Is there a way to determine scovilles in a pepper you grow yourself? or is this some scientific measurement that no one can do on their own other than to taste and die?

No idea, but good question. I normally eat a sliver and gauge the intensity of the heat.

Gotta swim in the deep end. I normally pop it open and inhale deeply, then swipe along tongue just to get a feel for slugging percentage. Chewing on them can be a trial, although it is transient. In 10 mins you're back to baseline.

And you can skip the Claritin

The deep end.:lol:

Nope. Taste and hope you don't die.

SHU is measured nowadays with a mass spectrometer, but there's still a controversy about what you measure: a single pod? samples of a single crop? samples of the variety from several locations? one year?

The touch-to-tongue method is more meaningful anyway.
:P
