Chile Peppers, Scorpion Peppers
Scorpion Peppers, Trinidad Moruga
Meet the new record holder for World’s Hottest Pepper – this fiery morsel averages a mind-blowing 1.2 million Scoville Heat Units, with some peppers testing at over 2 million! Originating from Trinidadian seeds, these peppers are grown by small farmers in Taiwan. Real heat lovers may enjoy dishes containing whole scorpion peppers, but for most of us, a small piece of pepper will add enough heat to any dish. With a tangy, fruity flavor, this pepper is absolutely delicious in hot sauces, marinades, and soup. HANDLE WITH CARE – wear gloves and make sure you have proper ventilation.
