New Hot Pepper “HP56” Could Beat Carolina Reaper, Current World’s Hottest

The HP56 pepper, also called the Death Strain could possibly beat the current record holder The Carolina Reaper. On August 7, 2013 the Carolina Reaper was officially recognized by Guiness World Records as the hottest chili in the world testing at 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU) average with a peak value of 2,200,000 SHU. This new pepper strain “HP56” blows that out of the water with preliminary testing of over 3,000,000 SHU!

As the news reporter describes in the video, the HP56 has a delayed burn, which could trick unsuspecting victims into initially thinking this pepper isn’t hot at all. The first 10 seconds you can taste the full flavor of this pepper; the heat kicks in and never stops building. The extreme concentration of capsaicinoids of the HP56 may cause unseasoned pepperheads to hallucinate.



HP56 Death Strain

This pepper still has to go through rigorous testing to see if the average SHU does in fact beat the Carolina Reaper. Stay tuned to PepperHead to see if it does prove to be as hot as claimed.

For now you will just have to settle for the current world’s hottest. Pick up Seeds, Plants, or Powder.

    Pure Capsaicin is 16,000,000 Sco’s or so. How does this pepper get higher than that?
    (I don’t doubt its the truth. I’m honestly wondering how.. Anyone give an explanation?)

        Thanks dude. Sorry, had a long week. Didnt even realize I was off by a whole freakin’ zero placement, lol.

        I’m really curious about the taste and hope this makes as great of hot sauce as Bhut’s and Carolina’s have at this point in time!
