New Hottest Chile...Carolina Reaper?

(1/10) > >>

roguejim:
I've been following the mad race that seems to be going on to develop the hottest chile.  I am currently growing the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T strain chile, the current Guinness Book record holder weighing in at ~1.4 million Scoville units.  But it looks like it is now being challenged by the Trinidad Morouga/Brain Strain chile, and now the Carolina Reaper.  Funnily, and perhaps, pathetically, there is some dissension among certain growers.  Accusations of "numbers fudging", "slightly changing the chile's name"...are some of the charges waged by certain Aussie growers.  Oh well.  Here's a couple of vids concerning the Carolina Reaper.  I'll be ordering some of these seeds for sure.

+1,000,000 scoville - Jalapeno's can be too hot for me, what on earth do you do with that much (ring of) firepower?

They would likely be useful in anesthesia production but I can't imagine eating them.   :o

I like hot peppers but Hungarian Yellows were the end of the line for me.

I love and use habaneros frequently, but that's my limit.
