HP22BNH7, otherwise known as the Carolina Reaper, is currently the hottest chilli pepper in the world and boy does it pack a punch. In terms of heat it regularly peaks at 2.2m Scoville units, which is the exact same level as a habanero that’s been dipped in magma, apparently. We’re not sure we’d ever try this. Well, maybe if someone dared us. Or gave us one pound for every Scoville unit. At least then we could buy a new tongue.
