Carolina Reaper – The World’s Hottest Pepper
The Carolina Reaper is officially THE World’s Hottest Pepper.
Originally given the title of World’s Hottest Pepper in 2013, The Reaper has won the title again with further testing in 2018.
The record now stands at an average of 1,641,000 SHU, 71,000 higher than it’s previous record, making it that much harder to beat.
This “thing” called the Carolina Reaper (AKA HP22B) is better described as the demon pepper child that was invented by man. There is nothing normal about this pepper because it was bred for heat and that it is. Oddly enough this pepper has excellent flavor as well.
Now normally superhots have chemical undertones as if you can actually taste the capsaicin, but that is not the case here.
This pepper has a sweet and fruity flavor, that is right before the heat kicks in.
One unique feature shared by a few of the super hot peppers is the “scorpion’s tail” that is very well defined in this pepper. It gets its tail from being a cross between a Pakistani Naga and a Red Habanero.
