The world's hottest pepper "Carolina Reaper"

The world's hottest pepper has been chosen and it is South Carolina's "Carolina Reaper," a waxy red capsicum the size of a golf ball.

The Guinness Book of World Records said farmer Ed Currie's pepper is the fieriest in the world, measuring an average of 1,569,300 Scoville Units.

In comparison, a jalapeno meaures about 5,000 to 8,000 Scoville Units. Zero is bland porridge.
