Cheongyang chili pepper is a medium-sized chilli cultivar of the species Capsicum annuum, with intensity of 10,000 Scoville heat units. Cheongyang chili peppers look similar to regular Korean chili peppers, but are many times more spicy.
The chilli is a local speciality of Cheongyang County in South Korea. However, it was named after Cheongsong and Yeongyang Counties when developed by Dr Yoo Il-Woong, by hybridizing local Jejudo chilli with Thai chilli.
