5 of the hottest peppers

Peppers, Chilli's whatever you call them they can be mild BUT they can be HOTHOTHOT.

Here we look at 5 of the hottest

Bhut Jolokia or Ghost Pepper

It’s said that in certain parts of India people use these peppers to keep elephants away, once you get past the heat or maybe slightly before you can taste you get a fruity taste. Before the hammer drops the flavour builds slowly… Boomfa

7 Pot Jonah

These 7 Pot peppers abound among the hottest peppers in the world, at there peak they can even beat the Ghost. Do have one of the fruiter flavours but once again roll the dice and see what happens

Trinidad 7 Pot Pepper

One chili can easily spice up seven pots of stew. This is another member of the Jonah family and packs another punch. One that is “slightly” more useable than but again can be a bit unpredictable

Infinity Pepper

Previously held the record for the hottest pepper but lost the record after 2 weeks. Created by Englishman Nick woods he good news is, one of these peppers could probably spice a meal for an army. Perhaps they should call it the 15-pot.

Naga Viper

Another to previous hold the Guinness world record for hottest chilli

It has the high heat of a scorpion pepper with the slow burn of a ghost pepper. It is currently 5th on the list
