What Troy says. Truth
At this point, to me too, especially since IMO they don't taste that great. Also, 2.7M is 17% capsaicin, right? How much capsaicin can a pepper have and still actually grow?The quest for the hottest pepper seems pointless to me.
That's the biggest issue I have too. "New Ghost Fries" or whatever and never have I tasted any heat. Taco Bell's Diablo sauce is hotter than most of those over hyped products.Businesses will take the hottest pepper, and then create various products that contain only a tiny trace of the pepper, and market it as something extreme, even when the final products are milder than a jalapeño.
yep!Vote with your dollars by not buying the seeds or products. Consume peppers that were selectively bred to taste good. If you want it hotter, use more pepper.
The pepper x will never be released.to.the.public, Ed is not really 'releasing' it. It will only go into saucesI don't want to start any trouble but I don't think Ed would go public with this if it wasn't true. It doesn't make any sense to put something out this totally fake. It would ruin his company instantly if he did that. My point being there was no reason for him to fake anything imho.

So, Ed has written guinness a big fat check for them to verify pepper x.as.the.world record holder. Therefore, it is both their interests to verify it. No record, no check to Guinness
Maybe fondle his voluptuous 'moobs'.I read that yesterday.
This sentence particularly interested me:
"He [Ed Currie] says three types of people are interested in superhot chillies: thrill-seekers, hipsters longing to find a fresh trend and addicts in recovery"
So which of you are "thrill-seekers, hipsters or addicts"?
That man has no idea about pepper growers and why we do it. In fact I think I'd like to punch him on the nose.
