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.
