This is our Doomsday Chili Pepper Seeds page. It tells how many chili pepper seeds one would need on hand in an emergency situation.
Due to variations in growing conditions, soil and weather, chili peppers tend to have various Scoville levels. They can start and go up to 1.2 million Scoville units like the ghost pepper which is the 4th hottest pepper in the world.
Chili peppers have a strong spicy taste that comes to them from the active alkaloid compounds' capsaicin, capsanthin, and capsorubin. The hotness of cayenne measured in “Scoville heat units” (SHU). On the Scoville scale, cayenne pepper has 30,000 to 50,000 SHU. A bell pepper has zero.
There are many benefits to eating chili peppers for they contain many
nutritious benefits. But for the purpose of our study we are going to
concentrate on their spice benefit.
They are various sizes and shapes so trying to figure out how many to eat a day for a 1200 calorie diet is almost impossible.
The best way to use chili peppers is to dry and crush them into a fine powder you can use to spice up your meals. In powder form they can last for three to four years.
You can also use them in dried form or wet form to make an insecticide to put on your plants to keep insects off.
Fifty plants should give you enough peppers to last for several years.
Let the peppers dry on the plant or harvest them and lay them out in sun. Once they are dry, crush them into a fine powder. You will need to add some sort of crushing tool to your doomsday supplies.
