Hot Pepper ...Did You Know?

Hot Pepper Trivia

  • Mammals are the only beings that are sensitive to the Capsicum, which is what gives them their “oomph”.

  • In 1912 a pharmacist by the name Wilbur Scoville created the “Scoville Organoleptic Scale” which is used to measure the intensity of hot peppers.

  • In 1977 Chili became the state food of Texas.

  • In the past powdered chili peppers have been sprinkled into the shoes to keep feet warm, and the Capsicum is used to topical rubs to treat pain from sore muscles and arthritis.
