The hottest pepper is the Carolina Reaper.
Ranking in with an astounding 2,200,000 SHU (that’s over 2 million on the Scoville rating).
This gives the reaper the World’s hottest title!
Bred for heat (and a beautiful color), it’s 200 times hotter then the Jalapeno.
It’s small, it’s mean, and it’s a cross between the Ghost pepper, and a Habanero.
Want to make your skin crawl? Your face melt? Your throat burn…
Grab a Carolina Reaper and prepare to scream.
And whatever you do, don’t breathe!
