Let’s face it. Food becomes a bit more interesting when you give it a spicy kick.
Not only does it taste better, but it also gives you a different food experience!
Now, get ready for some hot stuff and get to know the top 10 spiciest peppers in the world!
1. Carolina Reaper
Back in 2013, the Carolina Reaper ranked as the world’s hottest pepper.
But in 2018, it was tested again and was found to have a higher Scoville Heat Unit (a measure of Spiciness). Because of that, it was hailed as the world’s hottest pepper – again!
It’s even 200x hotter than a Jalapeño!
2. Trinidad Moruga Scorpion
A newly discovered pepper, this one comes from the native lands of Moruga in Trinidad and Tobago.
Now watch out for this one because once you take a bite, the burning sensation never stops. Even a cold glass of milk can’t save you!
3. 7 Pot Douglah
This pepper is considered to be the hottest pepper with the best flavor! And fun fact, it isn’t even red like most of the peppers we know of.
4. Red Savina Habanero
Also known as the Ghost Pepper, this one right here is a popular ingredient in hot sauces and spicy foods because of its flavor and floral aroma.
5. 7 Pot Red Giant
Having 1,000,000 SHU, this pepper was named after its capability of heating up to 7 pots of stew with just one piece!
6. 7 Pot Primo
With its unique long skinny tail, this pepper was created by the horticulturist Troy Primeaux.
Just like the Carolina Reaper, it has a scorpion-like tail and its skin is bumpy and pimply just like other peppers.
7. 7 Pot Barrackpore
This pepper comes from the Town of Chaguanas in Trinidad and Tobago.
It has a nice fruity flavor along with its considerable heat and comes in a variety of colors like white, yellow, brown, and red.
8. Trinidad Scorpion
This pepper was previously a Guinness World Record Holder in 2011 back in Australia.
Its name comes from its scorpion-like stinger found at its tip and the creator of this pepper is none other than Butch Taylor.
9. Bhut Jolokia
The Bhut Jolokia is the first pepper to be scientifically tested with over 1 million Scoville. A lot still mistakenly believe it was the world’s hottest pepper.
10. Naga Viper
Naga Viper is considered to be a rare kind of pepper that is cultivated in the United Kingdom.
This hybrid pepper came to life because of the different peppers and years of cross-pollination.
Now, raise your hand if you like spicy!
