A relative of the Ghost pepper, the Naga Morich pepper is extremely spicy as it averages between 1,000,000 to 1,500,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Naga Morich translates to 'snake or serpent chile,’ an appropriate name for this superhot pepper variety.
The Naga Morich, which is thin skinned and pointy, has a very fruity flavor that kicks in almost immediately after consumption. The extreme heat builds up for several minutes and eventually creates a powerful endorphin rush. One of the hottest peppers in the world, the Naga Morich's heat level is similar to other superhot peppers such as the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T pepper, Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, and the Carolina Reaper.
