World's Hottest Pepper is Grown in South Carolina, US

'Carolina Reaper' is the hottest pepper in the world. This is the Guinness record holder pepper. Last month, The Guinness Book of World Records has given the title of world's hottest pepper to Carolina Reaper pepper. 

The hottest chili on earth is grown in South Carolina, United States. Smokin Ed Currie is the man who has grown the world's hottest pepper Carolina Reaper. Ed Currie has grown a number of peppers at the PuckerButt Pepper Company. But the record holder pepper has a code name HP22B for "Higher Power, Pot No. 22, and Plant B."

After 4 years of searching and testing, The Guinness Book of World Records finally decided last month to name 'Carolina Reaper' as the world's hottest pepper. Winthrop University in South Carolina, USA, has tested the Carolina Reaper throughout 2012. And Carolina Reaper is proved to be the world's hottest pepper as rates at an average of 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).

"The Scoville Unit (SHU) scale is a method of quantifying a substance's 'spiciness', through determining the concentration of the chemical compounds responsible for the sensation, which are named capsaicinoids," according to The Guinness Book of World Records.
