Introduction

There is a great variety of chilli peppers to choose from. Chillies are often classified by their heat level using the Scoville scale. The scale ranges from zero to over a million, with most chillies scoring within the 1K to 100K range.

The more mature the chilli – with chillies commonly ripening from green to red – the more spicy it becomes. Most of the heat is found within the pith and seeds, rather than the flesh.
