A comparative evaluation of 20 hot pepper varieties according to pungency determination by organoleptic, spectrophoto-metric methods, and HPLC has been done. The capsaicin concentrations were in the range 1.0-7.15 mg/g d.w., pungency value -(17440-153120) SHU. A direct correlation between organoleptic analysis and capsaicin content determined spectrophotometrical-ly and using HPLC was determined. Spectrophotometric method was shown to give elevated values of capsaicin concentration especially in samples with low pungency, that was related to lack of chromatographic separation of capsaicin extract.
