Carolina reaper bong rips
Official by Guinness World Records. The Carolina Reaper ( 2,200,000 SHU) is the World’s Hottest Pepper.
This “thing” called the Carolina Reaper (aka HP22B) is better described as the demon pepper child that was invented by man. There is nothing normal about this pepper. It was bred for heat and that it is. Oddly enough this pepper has excellent flavor as well. Normally superhots have chemical undertones as if you can actually taste the capsaicin. The Carolina Reaper has a sweet and fruity flavor, that is right before the heat kicks in.
One unique feature shared by a few of the super hot peppers is the “scorpion’s tail” that is very well defined in this pepper. It gets its tail from being a cross between a Pakistani Naga and a Red Habanero. [Via: crazyhotseeds.com]
The Scoville scale is a measurement of the pungency (spicy heat) of chili peppers or other spicy foods as reported in Scoville heat units (SHU), a function of capsaicin concentration. Capsaicin is one of many related chemicals, collectively called capsaicinoids. [Via: wikipedia]
