Includes five Packets of MegaScoville Chilli Seeds measured at 1,000,000+SHU
The new World of Chillies seed Collection is for people on a serious mission to try the world’s super-chillies; those measured not just in Scoville Heat Units, but in Megascoville! These chillies will bring tears to your eyes, so make sure you are tough enough to play with the Super-hots before you start to grow this collection.

Until 2007, the Red Savina chilli held the record as the world’s hottest chilli until it was blasted from its 580,000SCU pedestal by a lesser-known north Indian pod, the Bhut Jolokia, incredibly rating 1,041,427SHU. Since then a number of chillies have emerged around the world rating over a Megascoville, including some very rare varieties.

Carolina Reaper

Current holder of the Guinnes Book of Records title of World’s Hottest Chilli with an official heat rating of 1,569,300SHU, reaching highs of over 2.2 million. Bred by Ed Currie of the Puckerbutt Pepper Company, reputedly bred from a Pakastani Naga and a Red Habanero from the Caribbean island of St Vincent. The chilli was for a long time known as HP22PB, or Higher Power Pot 22, Plant B.

Bhut Jolokia

Bhut Jolokia’s is a firm favourite amongst chilli heads. Prized not only for its immense heat but also its distinctive citrus tang. The Bhut featured in the Guinness Book of Records as World’s Hottest Chilli 2007-2011 before being toppled by the Infinity, Naga Viper and Butch T Scorpion in quick succession.

Trinidad Scorpion

Just one look at the Trinidad Scorpion and you know its going to be a seriously hot chilli. From its habanero-shaped top to the kick of its scorpion tail, this chilli means business. Many people reckon that it exceeds the Bhut Jolokia in heat but in fact its Scoville Heat rating has yet to be confirmed. Unofficially, it hovers around the Megascoville mark but the Butch T strain featured in the Guinness Book of Records with a whopping 1.4 million Scoville units.

Seven Pot

One of the rarest of the Superhots, the 7 Pot is so named because one chilli is apparently enough to spice up a whole week of meals. Hailing from Trinidad, this has yet to be tested but is rated to come a close second to the Morouga. It will set your mouth on fire!

Morouga Trinidad Scorpion

Thought to be a cross strain of the Trinidad Scorpion and Red Savina chilli, Moruga Trinidad Scorpion was the first chilli to ever test over 2 million Scoville Units, by the Chilli Pepper Institute, watch out they’ll blow the roof of your mouth off! Chillies are about the size of a golf ball with a fruity heat that grows and grows and grows.
