It seems that something 10x hotter than habenero would have to be diluted as hell to be edible, and any flavor component might be too diluted to matter at that point.
Shaji M wrote:I faced the same dilemma when I saw saplings for the ghost pepper aka bhoot jalokia, at a local nursery. It is considered the hottest pepper. On a Scoville scale, it registers almost a million units, while the habanero comes in at a wimpy 100,000 units. I cannot imagine any recipes where this would do anything other than completely overwhelm everything else! Maybe it could be useful in reviving corpses or warding off zombies!

Nowadays, Shaji, the ghost pepper has been eclipsed by the Jamaican Scorpion pepper (or so says the font of all knowledge, Wikipedia)
