World’s Hottest Pepper for now.
In 2013, the Carolina Reaper beat the Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T” pepper, to claim the record for being the World’s Hottest Pepper. However, in 2017, two new contenders including the Dragon’s Breath Pepper and Pepper X claimed to be hotter than 2.2 million Scoville units, though the heat of these peppers has not yet been officially proven nor have they received the official Guinness Record, so time will tell – learn more about these peppers here.
