The peppers listed on this page have a hotness rating of 1 - 99 on
Craig Dremann's scale.
A rating of 1 - 99 means that the pepper is spicy to mildly hot. The rating means one ounce of the pepper will make that many ounces of sauce detectably hot. Most of the large-fruited roasting peppers from the Soutwest United States and Mexico are in this range.
