Q: Hi Dave,
I want to know which chile is simply the hottest. There has been a lot of argument between the Red Savina habanero, the Chocolate Brown habanero, the Tezpur, the tepin and the Scotch bonnet.

A: Hello Rob:
Tests at New Mexico State showed that the Chocolate Brown habanero was the hottest of the varieties you mentioned. The Tezpur has not been tested in the U.S., to my knowledge.
