Hottest Pepper 2022

The hottest pepper in 2022 is, you guessed it, the Carolina Reaper!
 
Carolina Reaper - Hottest Pepper in 2022

Yep, the Hottest Pepper in 2022 is still the Carolina Reaper!

The wickedly hot Carolina Reaper is still holding the Guinness World Record crown again in 2022 for being the world's hottest pepper.

Until a new pepper comes on the scene and  invests in getting a pepper tested prior to the end of 2022, the Carolina Reaper will hold the crown.  Getting into the book of Guinness Records is difficult and expensive to test peppers, so since the Reaper took the crown in 2013, nobody has yet made this happen with any of the new peppers that have been developed. Of course lots of pepper breeders claim that their peppers are hotter than the Reaper, but none have gotten the Guinness blessing yet. So time will tell! 

For now, if you want to grow the world's hottest pepper in 2022, look no further than the Carolina Reaper:
