Carolina Reaper Seeds - Hottest Pepper in the WorldTHE HOTTEST PEPPER:
Currently, the Carolina Reaper is still the record-holder for being the world's hottest pepper. The Carolina Reaper has tested at over 2,200,000 Scoville heat units, which makes it the world champion for being the hottest pepper.

While there has been talk of Pepper X and Dragon's Breath Chile being hotter... none of these claims have been yet proven or awarded the Guinness Record. We even have some of the famed Dragon's Breath Chiles in our hands and we're going to grow them out and start offering seeds very soon. Read more »

Hottest peppers in the world

Looking for super hot pepper seeds? We have a huge collection of the hottest of the hot chile peppers! We're pretty sure any of these killer beasts will add plenty of heat and then-some to all your recipes or hot sauces. 

The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T is a burner and was originally recognized as the world's hottest pepper by Guinness Book of World Records in 2011. It has since been beat out by the Carolina Reaper, but dont' worry, this little beast is still wicket hot at 1,000,000+ Scoville units! 

For example, the Trinidad 7 Pot Chile with 1,300,000 Scoville Heat Units is named "7 pot" as it can flavor seven pots of chile. These super hot peppers have spice and flavor goes a LONG way!

The Bhut Jolokia Ghost Pepper is also a super hot pepper with 1,000,000 scoville heat units. It is in our opinion one of the best tasting super hot peppers as it has a great flavor. 

We also love the Devil's Tongue hot pepper, which is a beautiful golden yellow color and is extra super hot with 400,000 Scoville units. 

The  Trinidad Moruga Scorpion is also a wicked beast with numbing and burning qualities that are sure to please any pepper head. This pepper has been officially tested at  2,009,231 Scoville Heat Units!
