Not Something You Want to Think About on a Hot Day
"Some chiles are so hot that they literally kill taste buds. Other chiles? Not so much. But how do you know how hot a chile is (before tasting it and potentially ending up in pain)? Believe it or not, there is a scientific system for measuring and rating the "hotness" of chiles." -Cooking For Engineers

Check out the Scoville Unit for the hottest habanero pepper vs. the jalapeno. It's not in the article, but Google it.
