Spiciest Chillies In The World
Measuring a total of 2,200,000 Scoville Heat Unit this chilli has been declared the spiciest chilli in the world by the Guinness book of world records! Originally ranked as world’s hottest in 2013, the Reaper was tested again in 2018 with an even higher SHU. (71,000 SHU higher to be exact) This gives the reaper a renewed title as World’s Hottest!
Trinidad Moruga Scorpion
At 2,009,231 Scoville Heat Unit, this chilli is no joke either. Native to the lands of Moruga in Trinidad and Tobago. Once you take a bite of this formidable pepper the heat never stops building. This pepper may be lacking the Reaper’s stinger, but don’t let that fool you. The Moruga Scorpion is every bit as hot as The Carolina Reaper.
Don’t fall for the name. This is no sweet delicacy. It measures 1.8 million Scoville Heat Unit4. The hottest “superhot” peppers are traditionally red, but the Douglah defies the odds by being brown AND scortching hot. You can’t go wrong with fresh, dried, or powdered Douglah on any food. Also known as 7 Pod Douglah, Chocolate 7 Pod or the 7 Pot Brown.
Trinidad Scorpion Butch T
1.5 million SHU, to cook this, the person cooking it has to wear a chemical mask and a bodysuit! No doubt it’s insanely hot, but other peppers have been proven to be hotter.It’s aptly named due to the scorpion stinger found at the tip of the pepper and also the creator, Butch Taylor. The burn from this pepper is unlike any other.
7- Pot Primo
At 14 million SHU, that is one mean ass looking pepper! This pepper was created by horticulturist Troy Primeaux.Some peppers cultivators have tried to replicate the Primo look by breeding their own peppers to have a long stinger. When you just look at this pepper, you know it’s going to be INSANELY hot. It coincidentally looks strikingly similar to The Carolina Reaper…
1.3 Million SHU, this pepper can bring tears to your eyes! Hybrid of many different peppers and years of cross pollination created this variety of “Super HOT” pepper. It was never fully stabilized before being released so pod variation is expected.
