Ghost Pepper’ or ‘Ghost Pepper’. To many it is also known as ‘Bhoot Jalokia’. These chillies are generally found in the north-eastern region of India. In 2007, this variety of pepper was named as the ‘hottest pepper’ by the Guinness World Records Authority. And in one minute, a person wrote his name in the Guinness book by eating 17 of those peppers.
The man’s name is Gregory Foster, a citizen of the United States. He is a resident of California. Although Gregory set a record in November 2021. Recently he was officially recognized by the Guinness Book of World Authority.
The ‘ghost pepper’ is reported to have 1 million scovilles (a unit of measure of heat), while regular peppers have 900 to 2000 scovilles. Ghost pepper is 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce, popular in the US.
Gregory Foster has always loved spicy food. Cultivation of pepper himself. I have been trying to tolerate Jhal for a long time. In his words, ‘attempting this record was my personal challenge. Wanted to see how far I could push myself and my love for extra hot chillies.’
