Heat Level: 1,550,000 – 2,009,000 Scoville Heat Units

The Trinidad Scorpion may not be on the top of the World’s Hottest Peppers list, but this wicked little fireball is proof that coming in first isn’t everything.  The burn of this baby takes a little while to build and you have time to enjoy its slight sweetness first. Moments later the heat builds into a thick sweltering throat heat which can even make it difficult to speak.  Paul Bosland, a chili pepper expert and director of the Chile Pepper Institute, said, "You take a bite. It doesn't seem so bad, and then it builds and it builds and it builds. So it is quite nasty."

The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion is indigenous to the district of Moruga in Trinidad and Tobago.

The New Mexico State University's Chili Pepper Institute identified the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion as the hottest pepper in the world in February 2012. It has since been superceded by Ed Currie's Carolina Reaper, but that doesn't diminsh the Moruga's awesome heat. According to the New Mexico State University Chili Institute, the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion ranks at 2,009,231 SHU on the Scoville scale. Paul Bosland, a renowned pepper expert and director of the Chili Institute, said that, "You take a bite. It doesn't seem so bad, and then it builds and it builds and it builds. So it is quite nasty."

The Moruga's mean heat tops more than 1.2 million units on the Scoville heat scale, while fruits from some individual plants reached 2 million heat units.
