I have 4 Apache chili plants growing and they are just starting to grow some little peppers but finding info on the peppers is not easy.

I am reading they are 1-2 thousand on the scouville scale and I read 50-80 thousand on the scouville scale so between 1 and 80 thousand is pretty significant.


Anyone have any real life experience with them?

Not sure I want to experience them!! Is there any easy way to determine the heat of any hot pepper before using it in a recipe? I made BBQ beans this weekend and used the same amount off jalapeno peppers as before, less than sometimes. But the beans were a least twice as hot as before.

I always heard size matters. The smaller chillis are hottest. I make a jalapeno corn bread and I always take out the seeds and viens. I also have been using Poblanos a lot in recipes that call for bell peppers. Not much heat but more chilli flavor. I've never heard of an Apache Chilli. Did you start from seed or plant. Take a picture and let us see it.

Hand it to someone and say, "Nah, it's not hot at all." :twisted:

For home cooks I don't know of any method other than tasting.
