Hottest Pepper 2022: Carolina Reaper from Sandia Seed

Carolina Reaper Seeds

*Officially, the Carolina Reaper is still the hottest pepper in the world in 2022. The official Guinness World Record heat level of the Reaper was rated at 1,641,183 Scoville Heat Units (SHU) in 2017, according to tests conducted by Winthrop University in South Carolina. The figure is an average for the tested batch; the hottest individual pepper was measured at 2.2 million SHU. While some of the other peppers we mentioned including the mythological Dragon's Breath pepper have been claimed to be hotter, they have still not achieved any official Guiness World Records, yet.
