When you want heat, heat, heat just go for this hot pepper the Carolina Reaper. It was originally called the HP22B and it is very, very, very hot. In 2012 it became the worlds hottest chilli pepper smashing the record with 1,569,300 average scoville units.

Peppers are red, bright red and very gnarly with a crinkled surface. Do not under estimate this chilli pepper! Handle with extreme care and cook with it sparingly ! 

I won't write about the flavour because I daren't eat one :)

Heat Rating : 1,569,300 Scoville Units. What is a scoville unit?
