Carolina Reaper

"As of 2015 this is the official hottest pepper in the world, measuring over 1.5 million SHU with some pods up to 2.2 million. (this is 10 times the heat of a habanero!) Pods are most like the Trinidad Scorpion, with telltale wrinkling and often (but not always) a long tail. The blistering heat goes a long way in hot sauces and caution s advised when handling any part of the frit, including seeds. Use gloves!"
