New World’s Hottest Pepper
Guinness World Records has released a new World’s Hottest Pepper, beating the Carolina Reaper by 71,000 SHU!
and that new pepper is….
The Carolina Reaper!
Yes, you heard me, The Carolina Reaper has beaten itself of the previous undisputed record. Now testing an average of 1,641,000 SHU. That is 71,000 higher than the previous average.
Now 5 years after the Carolina Reaper was originally released, further isolation of specific phenotypes has allowed Ed Curry to create an even hotter version of the chili pepper.
In Ed’s press release he states that his pepper is officially the hottest “unlike recent dubious ‘world’s hottest’ claims from other peppers”.
This is a direct shot at a pepper called “Dragon’s Breath” where Tom Smith and Bob Price claimed a World’s Hottest pepper with limited scientific testing to back it up.
The world’s hottest pepper war is cutthroat and The Reaper is not taking any prisoners.

The peppers are so hot that I think I can see dead people as well… no joke!
where was the dead people tell me what happened
Hi, my name is Mya and I’m 12. My grandpa never thinks anything is hot enough, so this year my dad decided do grow some reapers and they are already getting their stingers!!!! I decided I would just try a little bit of the juice… I can’t wait!
waiting to have a taste of this
I’ve grown and used both Carolina Reapers and Trinidad Moruga Scorpion peppers for cooking and to give Tequila an added punch (gives new meaning to a killer margarita).. Reapers deliver HEAT like a blow from a baseball bat. Scorpion peppers not only give HEAT but they also add a fruit like flavor just before the HEAT melts your taste buds. Just my opinion.
