Interlude (3) – The Hottest Chili – 청량고추

Posted in Interlude (Theme), Quintesentially Korean by 노강호 on November 11, 2010

Ch’eong-ryang go-ch’wu (청량고추) is the hottest of Korean chillies and is small and dark green in colour. I approach any smaller chili with caution just in case it’s this variety. It is common throughout the year but specially so in Autumn  (Link to post on chillies and the Scoville Heat Scale).
