Dragon’s Breath is the new Worlds Hottest Chili





“It was a complete accident but I’m chuffed to bits – it’s a lovely looking tree,” Mr Smith told the Telegraph.

The chili was, however, grown in collaboration with scientists from Nottingham Trent University, who are interested in the medicinal use of chilis as an anesthetic. It was they who verified that the Dragon’s Breath scored the highest rating ever recorded on the Scoville heat scale, 2.48 million, beating the rival Reaper, which measures 2.2 million.

The Scoville scale measures the intensity of heat in units. The 2.48 million Scoville heat units (SHU) means that one drop of oil from this chili can be detected in 2.48 million drops of water, making it basically weapons-grade hot. For comparison, pepper spray used by the US Army is 2 million SHU.





The scientists believe that if you tried to actually eat this chili, your airways would likely close up from the burn and you’d go into anaphylactic shock and die. However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t a force for good, not evil.

The capsaicin oil from it is so potent it numbs the skin, giving it excellent potential as an anesthetic, especially for those allergic to painkillers, or even for use in developing countries where access to and funding for anesthetics is limited.

Chili peppers actually have a long history of medical value, from calming the gut’s immune system to helping you live longer. Just don’t eat this one.


Enjoy!

SWEEET! Love me super hot peppers. I had started growing some of the reapers, and then the young ones pulled out all the saplings and threw them down the sink. How disappointed was i


Hopefully these seeds will get distributed commercially.

That makes my stomach hurt just thinking about it...

on the flip side of the coin I also wonder about the flavor... if it has any before it kills you..

The best part about this, imo, is that he made it accidentally. Gotta love It!

How long you think before someone brings it into the states?

Well that sucks, I love a good chilli

However I don't believe it will stop people attempting the Dragon breath challenge should foolish people manage to get their hands on the chilli, would never do it myself but I absolutely love some of the reactions from people eating Reapers

Better yet, how long before some YouTube idiot makes a video eating one and dies on the spot?

I would keep the chilling in a small exemplary decorative glass with a cork on top, placed on a shelf.lol

I'm sure some will try this chili, i hope no one dies from it, but hey, there are people like PublicOpinion out there that will challenge your rights to do so.lol.

How much would you pay to eat one or have someone eat it if front of you?

Crazy hot. I just planted a couple of Ghost chili plants a couple days ago, and habanaro peppers last year.

Sad thing is... I would try it if I knew the amount of extract used... and if the pot of chilli was big enough.

had a little old mexican lady used to come by work selling tamales and home made sandwiches... one day she was like I have home made guacamole.. so of course I get some coat the sandwich and go to town.

the little witch... used habenero extract... and she did not skimp on the amount... man it tasted so good.. but it wrecked my gut.

So yea.. even through Habenero is my upper limit... hard to say no to a good hot chilli.

Good lord, if by some miracle, you didn't die eating it, I bet you would wish you were dead expelling it.



Would make a wicked weapon though.
