I have seen this in a few different publications, but never noticed it on here:

http://www.iflscienc...-hottest-chili/

 

Not saying it's accurate, just thought others might like to see it.

Someone had a thread on facebook with this and all I  could think of was another over hyped, over priced pepper.

 

 

I promise you I have had hotter experiences from some of the pods that came thru my beds every year.

 

 

I will bet my house these babies have killed more people then peppers

Even if 2.48 million is accurate, it still wouldn't the hottest pepper.

Ed is already teasing his mystery pepper on the puckerbutt Instagram feed in response to this, so if they do spend the money to get the title I doubt it will last long

Chillibobs was at Reading yesterday and, while many of my favourite producers bought his plants, none had high hopes for them.

One, however, had some rather interesting info on Ed's. Apparently he has preliminary ratings already and, of his two peppers (one was the Death Strain, they couldn't name the other), one was 2.2 million and the other 3.3.

Which makes me wonder, is that 2.2 an average? If not, isn't that milder than the Reaper's almost 2.3?

I'm confused, Chilibob was talking about Ed's pepper, saying the'res a new one at 3.3m SHU?

No, Chillibob is still insisting that his peppers are 2.3-2.7 million, averaging 2.48, and will claim the record when re-rated later this year.

 

It was one of my producer friends, who apparently have quite a close working relationship with Ed (the full trademarked pepper name on their Reaper product supports this), that gave me that news.

They neither confirmed nor denied the possibility that the second pepper was Ed's evergreen "Gator" chilli so it seems as though they either didn't know or couldn't say any more than that.

 

Assuming that this information is real (and I have no reason to doubt my source), this does confirm the legitimacy of Ed's official attempt certificate, though. Plus, it tells us that his favourite university has given numbers that support the claim so he's not just trying to scare away other potential claimants.

 

I have a second lead to follow up, though that one may be sworn to secrecy or just a rumour. I'll report back if anything comes of it.

I am thinking that the pepper Ed Currie submitted to Guinness may have been the Chocolate Bhutlah SM. Just from a business perspective, it seems to make sense. The Bhutlah has good name recognition; people already know about it and are interested. Ed already sells the seeds and pods; I have to think that the demand for those products, and for his Chocolate Plague sauce, would increase overnight if the Bhutlah won the title. 

 

I read in another thread that the Hippy Seed Company is also gunning for the title. I wonder what pepper they submitted. The Neil S Scorpion, or something else? Maybe something we haven't seen before?

 

 

 

I'll put this against it any day :)

 

 

 

Wow, that is a great looking pod. I'm guessing it is your own cross? Nice work, if it is  :cool:

Craig Dremann claims he has a Scorpion that will "be the record holder for many decades" once it is stabilized:

Flavor should be king. Heat should be secondary.

He wrote that a really long time ago. Well before the moruga scorpion and reaper came along.
