What is very surprising about these pepper is they are packed with flavor and heat. The Scoville Scale is used to gauge the pungency of peppers. For example, a jalapeno has a Scoville Heat Rating of between 5,000 - 10,000 Scoville Heat Units while a Ghost Pepper has a Scoville Heat Rating of just over 1 million. A Wiri Wiri pepper has a Scoville heat rating between 100,000 - 350,000 SHU. This puts the Wiri Wiri pepper on par as far as the pungency of habanero peppers.
