Where are the Top 10 Hottest Peppers In The World?

- Jan 17, 2020 06:00 PM

(1). Carolina Reaper 2,200,000 SHU


The previous world champion, Carolina Reaper has been beat!  by itself… The Carolina Reaper is once again officially the World’s Hottest Pepper.

(2). Trinidad Moruga Scorpion 2,009,231 SHU


Straight from the depths of hell the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga Blend, AKA Moruga Scorpion, is a rare sought after pepper that was only just recently discovered.

(3). 7 Pot Douglah 1,853,936 SHU


Well, renown in the pepper community as one of the hottest peppers with the best flavour.

(4). 7 Pot Primo 1,469,000 SHU

The 7 Pot Primo is very distinctive with its long skinny “tail”.

(5). Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T” 1,463,700 SHU


The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T is a previous Guinness World Record Holder (2011) from Australia.

(6). Naga Viper 1,349,000 SHU

Naga Viper is an extremely rare pepper cultivated in the UK. Hybrid of many different peppers and years of cross-pollination created this variety of “Super HOT” pepper.

(7). Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia) 1,041,427 SHU

The Ghost Pepper is the most famous “Super Hot” due to the amount of press it has received in the past.

(8). 7 Pot Barrackpore ~1,000,000 SHU


The 7 Pot Barrackpore is one of the hottest of the 7 Pot peppers.

(9). 7 Pot Red (Giant) ~1,000,000 SHU

The 7 pots were named after their ability to heat up 7 pots of stew and that it does! (other varieties include Jonah and Yellow)

(10): Red Savina Habanero 500,000 SHU


Back in the early years of super hots, the Red Savina Habanero was KING!

Dragon’s Breath 2,483,584 SHU

There have been recent reports of a Dragon’s Breath pepper claiming to be hotter than the Carolina Reaper.


Preliminary testing of the Dragon’s Breath pepper pegs it at 2,483,584 SHU which would blow the Carolina Reaper out of the water.

Dragon’s Breath

It could be a publicity stunt in which the “news” websites ate up, even claiming Dragon’s Breath could kill you. Technically a pencil can kill you too…


(Pepper X)

Pepper X is another pepper claiming to be TWICE as hot as the Carolina Reaper has surfaced, but this might have more merit. Very limited information is known about Pepper X as the creator has kept it under wraps

However, we will have to wait and see if Pepper X is real before adding to our Top 10 list.
