RE: Heat Range of Peppers

I can see the Jalapeno is on the scale at 3,500��"8,000
but does anyone know what the other 2 fit into the scale

RE: Heat Range of Peppers

I just saw something that said Hot Banana Wax 0-500
and Hung Wax 1-15K

RE: Heat Range of Peppers

I like the Hot Banana Wax straight form the Jar, the jalapeños I have been eating them halved deseeded nice bit of cheddar cheese and onion put in oven until golden brown and eat them :)

The Hung Wax seem to have a very wide range 1000 - 15000
