The current Guinness World-Record holder for heat!
Out of stock
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past two years you will have heard of the Carolina Reaper in some way as it took the chilli world by storm in 2017 when it was officially tested and found to be (and still is!) hotter than the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T and the Moruga. Ed Currie, owner of the PuckerButt Pepper Company in Fort Mill, US, crossed a La Soufriere pepper from St Vincent Island in the Caribbean and a Naga Viper, another previous Guinness World Record, to form this beautifully scary chilli pepper with its pimply skin, large body and devilish tail. The taste can appear a little bit bitter at first but once the sweetness comes through then you can really see why this chili is a favourite amongst chilli heads. It’s not the current official hottest chilli pepper in the world for nothing though so prepare to be knocked over by its scorching bite!
