More about the trio

Such is the competition amongst the world's chilli heads to find or produce the World's Hottest Chilli that there are an increasing number of chillies that have broken the records in the past few years. This collection puts together the hottest and the finest chillies.

The Carolina Reaper was bred in Fort South Carolina by pepper cultivar Ed Currie. Originally known by the catchy name of HP22B which stood for Higher Power, Pot 22, Plant B, it was renamed once the grower realised what it was he hand on his hands.

Crowned King of the Pods in December 2013 by the Guinness Book of Records at a cost of 12,000USD to collect the evidence to prove it. The book states 1,569,300 Scoville units as the heat levels, but these actually peaked at over 2.2 million. One of these babies goes a long way …..

Butch Taylor, the owner of a Hot Sauce company was selectively breeding Trinidad Scorpions to get the hottest possible.  It was actually a Butch T grown in Australia that made it into the Guinness Book of Records with a rating of an insane 1,463,700 Scoville Heat Units. The chilli stayed in the book for nearly two years from early 2012 to December 2013.

Bhut Jolokia is a long time favourite of chilli heads around the world. Aside form its intense heat, the chilli boats a sublime citrus flavour that has kept the plant in the greenhouses of chilli growers even after hotter pods have been found. The Bhut starred in the Book from 2007-2001.
