Understanding the Heat: The Scoville scale is a measurement of the pungency (spicy heat) of chili peppers. Wilbur Lincoln Scoville, January 22, 1865 – March 10, 1942 was an American pharmacist best known for his creation of the "Scoville Organoleptic Test", now standardized as the Scoville scale. He devised the test and scale in 1912 while working at the Parke-Davis pharmaceutical company to measure pungency, "spiciness" or "heat", of various chili peppers. Considering how 'HOT' Hot Pepper Market wishes the jam to be, they use more or less of the pepper.
Mango Habanero: You feel the fruits and the specific kick of the habanero. This is Hot Pepper Market's hottest jam. It's for those of you who like it 'HOT'! The flavor of the mango comes through, yet the heat of the habaneros is very dominating. On the Scoville scale, the habanero pepper is close to the top.
Chipotle: All the smokiness of the jalapeno that has been smoked for the right amount of time. This Chipotle Jam is considered medium heat. On the Scoville scale, it is between 5,000 - 10,000. Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapeno peppers.
Strawbanero: The fancy taste of the sweet strawberry, waking up your senses with a hint of habanero. This Strawbanero Jam is mild. Even though the habanero is a very hot pepper, Hot Pepper Market used just enough to spice up the jam yet making it enjoyable for those who don't like it 'HOT'.
Red Chili: The smoothness of the red chili pepper enhanced by the right amount of apple vinegar. In this Red Chili Jam, 'Fresno Chili' is used, and is less hot. Looking at the Scoville scale, it is rated between 3,500 - 10,000.
