Hottest Pepper in the World: Pepper X in October 2023

Carolina Reaper Seeds - hottest pepper in the world!If you want to grow the hottest peppers in the world, then you've come to the right place. Sandia Seed offers some of the hottest peppers of the world in our huge collection of over 100 chile peppers. Our hottest pepper is of course the Carolina Reaper, which WAS the Guinness World Record holder up until August 23, 2023 for being the hottest chile in the world with Scovilles ranging between 1,500,000 and 2 million! That's HOT! We like to use this super hot beast in salsas and hot sauces, which tame the heat a bit and let you really taste the fruitiness of the Reaper.

The new world record holder for being the world's hottest pepper is Pepper X, and, sorry, seeds are NOT available. Pepper X, bred by the same grower (Ed Currie) as the Carolina Reaper, won the crown from Guinness World Records in August 2023. Read more »

We also have lots of other super hot peppers that nearly rival the Reaper in heat, so make sure to try all of them in your garden. We love to grow different super hots each year, as they all have their own unique flavors and heat so it's hard to pick a favorite. We love them all!

Below is a page out of our new Seed Catalog that shows some of the hottest peppers from around the world:
