'Pepper X,' is three times as spicy as a Carolina Reaper  :shocked:  :HideEyes:  I'll stick with jalapeños.

QuoteThe Guinness World Record for "hottest chili pepper" has been awarded to Pepper X, which clocks in 2,693,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), the publication announced in a press release on Monday, October 16.

Pepper X is a specially crossbred pepper created by Ed Currie, the owner of Puckerbutt Pepper Company in South Carolina. His Carolina Reaper pepper previously held the world record for hottest chili pepper.

The Carolina Reaper came in at "only" an average 1,640,000 million SHU. As the Scoville scale is logarithmic, that means that Pepper X is about three times as spicy as the Carolina Reaper.

I'll pass.  At my age with as much booze and spicy food as I've put down my stomach lining is thinner than my hair.

I like spicy but it just reached the point of "why?"
