World’s Hottest Chile Pepper? – HP22B Edition
Here we go again! Since the war for the world’s hottest chile is becoming a monthly thing, then I will start doing a monthly segment about it.
Thanks to a story from a local NPR affiliate in South Carolina; the race for the hottest chile pepper in the world is back in full force. Ed Currie, a grower from Rock Hill, SC says his HP22B chile is the new hotness, and the Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T” is old and busted. I will do my best to talk to Ed, Dr. Cliff Calloway, and everyone else involved as soon as possible, but until then you can watch the video of the NPR host trying this chile.
