Chili is an indispensable ingredient for many people’s cooking in daily life. But do you know where the hottest peppers in the world come from? How hot is the hottest chili in the world? According to a report by Guinness World Records: The hottest pepper in the world is Smoed’s “Carolina Reaper”, which is also known as ghost pepper. A kind of super pepper was cultivated in South Carolina by the American Pucker Butt Pepper Company. According to an experiment conducted in 2012 at Winthrop University in South Carolina, the average spiciness reached 1,569,300 SHU (Scoville spiciness unit), with a peak of 2,200,000 SHU, which is comparable to the spiciness of civilian chili sprays. Equivalent (generally 2 million SHU).
According to reports, it took more than 4 years for the Guinness Book of World Records to finally determine in November that Curry’s masterpiece “Carolina Grim Reaper” pepper is the hottest pepper on earth. Curry’s “Reaper Pepper” has also been certified by Winthrop University students. One of their graduation assignments is to taste food.
But whether Curry’s “No. 1 hot in the world” can dominate the world for a long time, even scientists can’t answer this question. Boslan, director of the Red Pepper Research Institute at New Mexico State University, said that the spiciness of peppers depends not only on genes, but also on where they are grown. And there are farmers all over the world who want to grow the hottest peppers in the world, and this “spicy” contest may be endless.
