World's Hottest Chilli!

Carolina Reaper, World's Hottest Pepper
  • The Carolina Reaper, originally named the HP22B, is a cultivar of chilli pepper of the Capsicum Chinese species.
  • The Carolina Reaper is officially the Worlds Hottest Pepper as ranked by Guinness Records. It was bred for heat and that it is with an average SHU of over 1.5 million and peaks at 2.2 Million SHU! It gets this insane heat from being a cross between a Pakastani Naga and a Red Habanero. Oddly enough this pepper doesn't just have heat, but excellent flavour as well.
