Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper, The Worlds Hottest Chilli
All Pods Grown By Ourselves In The UK
We have grown the Carolina Reaper pods, harvested them and professionally dried the pods to ensure the best quality product is passed onto you our customers. Our pods are not oven dried so unlike many dried chilli on sale ours still retain the heat, flavour and goodness of the fresh pods.
Dried chillies are fantastic to have in the kitchen. As they dry, they develop deep rich flavours that are just not there in the fresh fruit. They retain all the heat so they can be 10 times hotter than the fresh chilli when compared by weight.
What The Record Says
“The hottest chilli in the world is Smokin Ed’s ‘Carolina Reaper’, grown by The PuckerButt Pepper Company (USA), which rates at an average of 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), according to tests conducted by Winthrop University in South Carolina, USA, throughout 2012. The Scoville Unit (SHU) scale is a method of quantifying a substance’s ‘spiciness’, through determining the concentration of the chemical compounds responsible for the sensation, which are named capsaicinoids.”
What The PuckerButt Pepper Company Says
“This is the Hottest Chilli in the World, Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper pepper, formerly known as HP22B. It is beautiful with a bright red rough surface and a long stinger. But don’t let looks fool you! This chilli got its name for a reason. If you are stupid enough to eat this chilli pepper whole, you may wish to enter the doors of death willingly. Be very, very careful using this pepper. Those who don’t fear the Reaper are fools.”
