KING OF THE HOT PEPPERS
Meet the hottest hot pepper in town,
the Carolina Reaper pepper.
A relatively new variety of pepper,
it is the smallest of garden hot peppers.
And what it misses in size,
it more than makes up in HEAT.
This little fella' measures in
at 1.5-million Scoville Units
(the heat scale for hot peppers).
the very hot Habanero pepper
produces only 250,000 Scoville Units.
That makes the Carolina Reaper
six times hotter than the notorious Habanero!
