The Carolina Reaper is the mother of all super hot chillies. It has been rated as the world’s hottest chilli pepper by Guinness World Records since August 7, 2013. It averages 1,569,300 on the Scoville Scale with peak levels of over 2,200,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). The original crossbreed was between a Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper), a former world record holder, and a Red Habanero chilli pepper. For hardcore chilliheads this is the Holy Grail, the Head Honcho, the baddest, meanest ‘rip your throat out, tear your tongue off, smash you in the face with a half melted shovel’ chilli that has ever graced the face of the Earth. Get yourself a Carolina Reaper. You are mad if ya’ don’t!
