We acquired our seeds directly from the original grower in the UK and grew these out this year. The Dragon’s Breath pepper is named for the symbol of Wales – the Welsh dragon. It is believed to be the unofficial world’s hottest pepper with a reported peak heat of 2.48 million Scoville heat units. No official tests have been performed to back up these claims but I can tell you from firsthand experience this pepper is one of the hottest we have grown. The smell and pungency of the capsaicin knocks you down when the chili is cut into.
Heat level: 2,000,000++(SHU) Scoville Heat Units – Nuclear Heat
