It was only introduced to the western world in 2000. In that same year, a report was published stating it’s level of heat as almost double that of a Red Savina Habanero which was believed to be the world’s hottest pepper.

Measuring the Heat of Hot Peppers
Chili pepper heat is measured in Scoville Units. Developed by Wilbur Scoville in 1912, Scoville Units measure chili pepper heat in multiples of 100, with the bell peppers at 0 and the habanero at over 300,000 Scoville Units.
The Scoville Unit rating of a pepper is determined by a dilution taste test. Pure ground chili peppers are blended with a sugar-water solution. A panel of testers sips the mixture in increasingly diluted concentrations until it no longer burns the mouth. The Scoville Unit number is based on how much the ground chili needs to be diluted before no heat is detected. (Nowadays, liquid chromatography, rather than Scoville’s dilution taste test, is used to evaluate the heat of chili peppers.)
The substance that makes a chili hot is called capsaicin, also known for its ability to improve one’s health by increasing blood circulation and metabolism. Pure capsaicin comes in at over 16 million Scoville Units! Capsaicin is found in its highest concentrations (about 80% of the total amount) in the ribs of the pepper, and because of their proximity, the seeds are also highly concentrated. Removing the ribs and seeds will reduce the heat of the chili pepper. Capsaicin is also distributed in smaller amounts throughout the flesh of the chili pepper, and because it’s distributed unevenly it’s common for some areas of pepper to be hotter than others.
