An Australian Pepper called the Butch T Trinidad Scorpion is now the world’s hottest pepper. I like it hot, but this may be off the chain!
The record setting Butch T Trinidad Scorpion tested at 1,463,700 SHU (SHU = scoville heat units). The current official Guinness record holder is the Naga Viper pepper which tested at 1,382,118 scoville heat units!
Wana know how it tastes? Watch two guys eat a whole one. (warning: foul language on video.)
Something else that mother nature cooks up with is even hotter here!!
