The World Has A New Hottest Chili Pepper: X

The World Has A New Hottest Chili Pepper: X
Oct 19 2023 Share

Guinness World Records has declared Chili Pepper X as the world’s hottest pepper, surpassing the Carolina Reaper. 

Tests conducted by Winthrop University in South Carolina show Pepper X averages 2.69 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU), while the Carolina Reaper averages 1.64 million SHU. This scale, devised by Wilbur Scoville in 1912, measures chili pepper spiciness.

In comparison, a typical jalapeño scores between 3,000 to 8,000 SHU. Pepper X is the creation of Ed Currie, the founder of Puckerbutt Pepper Company in South Carolina, who also developed the Carolina Reaper in 2013. Over a decade, Currie meticulously crossbred Pepper X with other high-heat peppers to elevate its capsaicin content.

Initially unveiled on the YouTube series “Hot Ones,” Pepper X’s intensity surpasses even the formidable Carolina Reaper. Puckerbutt Pepper Company’s website describes the Reaper as “painfully hot,” cautioning against underestimating it. 

However, there is no information yet on how they characterize a pepper that boasts a million more units on the Scoville scale than the Reaper. This achievement marks a new pinnacle in the world of spicy peppers, signaling a fiery contender for those with a taste for extreme heat.

Invited onto an episode of Popolin, the late Sion Grech’s sister Rita spoke about what the family went through following the murder, stating that whoever killed Sion killed their parents due to the grief. 

Rita explained how her father experienced immense regret for not being as accepting of Sion prior to her death, whereas their mother was ridden to a wheel-chair and suffered with depression.

Rita went on to explain what the family went through, about hearing about the murder and how the case did not do Sion or their family justice. 

Sion Grech’s body was found dumped in a Marsa field in April 2005. Sion was just 20 years old, with an autopsy determining that she had been stabbed at least 17 times.

Ismael Habesh and Faical Mohouachi were both cleared of wilful homicide by a nine person jury earlier this year.
