The Dragon’s Breath is currently the hottest pepper which is available out there. It became the hottest pepper in the world this past May when it overtook the Carolina Reaper.
The Dragon’s Breath had a Scoville count of 2.48 million units which was way better than the reaper which had 1.5 million. But the inventor of the reaper, Ed Currie is in no mood to give up.
He has now come up with yet another mouth destroyer and has named it Pepper X. It apparently has around 3.18 million Scoville units and is expected to overtake Dragon’s breath as the hottest pepper in November.
