Mike Smith with a Dragons Breath.

Just read an article about the hottest chilli in the world, Dragons Breath, developed by Mike Smith a hobby grower from Wales. Also unpacked my backpack and realised I had two gifts of chilli pods with seeds from Homegrown Nurseries.

The Dragons Breath has not been certified by Guinness World Records, but is in the process as it dwarfs other chillies around the world.  After all it is considered a weapons grade, record breaking, one bite airway burn that will seal your lungs for good. Might go with a good Durban curry.

It measures more than 2.48m on the Scoville scale, and it could potentially cause a type of anaphylactic shock for someone who eats it, burning the airways and closing them up. Sauce

BhutJolokia09_Asit.jpgI recently bought the Ghost Chilli (aka Bhut jolokia) plant from a farmers market and was told by a local chilli enthusiast that it was the hottest chilli in the world. It was the hottest chilli in the world in 2007, and the man that told me is probably still living in the late 60’s and early 70’s.

The Ghost chilli is rated at more than 1 million Scoville heat units (SHUs). However, the ghost chili was shortly superseded by the Infinity chili in 2011, followed by the Naga Viper, the Trinidad moruga scorpion in 2012, and the Carolina Reaper on August 7, 2013.

But lets get to the bottom of the hottest chilli in the world, 2017, atleast the top 5.

With a growing worldwide extinction of many the worlds species due to climate change and less natural habitat to breed and live sustainable lives. Animals also have the added danger in rural and urban areas of dying from humans litter. Its great to see artists turn one mans litter into another woman’s fashion accessory!

I found this website that sells recycled products from artists and crafters around the world. From Africa to Asia, through to the America’s, ACX supplies quality original items for sale on their online shop.
