Trinidad Scorpion Chilli
A 10g bag of Trinidad Scorpion Chillies.
The Trinidad Scorpion was top of the chilli pops for three years with 1.2 million scoville heat units, until the Carolina Reaper mercilessly waved its sickle. Known for its pungent fruity smell, the scorpion’s sting does exactly what it says on the tin.
How hot is the Trinidad Scorpion?
The Trinidad Scorpion is the second hottest pepper in the world and, while being tested, the capsaicin levels were so high that it soaked through the working gloves of the testers and onto their hands. This extremely hot pepper can be 1.2 million SHU, so it’s not hard to see how this fiery food could do some damage, especially when you need a good scratch in the love department. Taste testers described the taste as something that builds and builds until mild madness sets in.
