The Dorset Naga is a cultivar of the Naga Jolokia or Bhut Jolokia, which has been recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records as being the hottest pepper on the planet. With a Scoville heat unit measurement of around 1 million, it replaces the Red Savina with nearly double its heat intensity. This rating can be more or less depending on climate. Drier climates with less rainfall will produce hotter peppers. The Dorset Naga came about through genetic selection in Dorest, England. Specimens have been tested at 1.6 million Scoville heat units.
