Carolina Reapers, the world’s hottest chili pepper, is found in Fort Mill, South Carolina, and is as hot as most police pepper sprays.
Winthrop University identified in November 2012 that the pepper grown from the man named Curry of South Carolina in the United States was the world’s hottest chili pepper. The pungency is almost as spicy as most police pepper sprays.
The pepperyness is measured by the “Scoville Heat Units”. 0 degrees represents mildness, and the average Mexican pepper is about 5,000 degrees. Currie’s “Carolina Reapers” is 1.56 million 9300 degrees, and there is a one-point high of 2.2 million. Police pepper water is about 2 million degrees.
A 9-year-old boy from Scotland is currently challenging the world’s hottest chili pepper“Carolina Reapers”. However, after eating chili, the boy was so hot that he couldn’t stand it. Even if he kept drinking milk, he wouldn’t help. Finally, he would be sent to hospital for treatment. The boy challenge video has been uploaded for only a few days and has already received more than 1 million clicks. The boy said that if he can get a lot of clicks again, he will continue to do so.
