Fruit with an extreme kick
It’s hard to describe them as fruit, but these extremely hot peppers are indeed fruit, they deliver a little fruity undertone that pepperscale.com describes as something you can taste before the heat starts to kick in. Peppers like Trinidad Chocolate Scorpion pepper or the infamously hot Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper pepper, are two fine examples of the dangerously hot chilies.
These peppers are to be used with caution and eating them raw is simply not recommended, pepperscale.com mentions that “these peppers are truly the focus of extreme eaters”.
Finding these peppers as in sauces or powders is extremely hard at supermarkets, but you can always grow your now peppers and make a dangerously hot sauce.
heat to recipes
When we say these are hot, we’re not kidding, these peppers must be handled preferably with gloves and safety glasses, if you’re cutting them the oils and fumes might get to your eyes, and nobody wants to deal with this.
To give you an idea, what a lot of people consider a pretty hot pepper, like Habanero is about 100,000 Scoville heat units, which gives a pretty decent kick to food. Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper pepper will surprise you at 1.5 million Scoville heat units! Chocolate Barrackpore chili will make your eyes water with a 1.2 million Scoville units, over 100 times hotter than a Habanero!
If you really enjoy eating really (as in really, really!) hot peppers these are for you.
