This is the burgundy strain of the famous red Trinidad Moruga Scorpion red.
There are super-hot's. And then there's the sweat inducing, tear generating, mouth on fire Trinidad Moruga Scorpion.
Up untill November 2013 this was by far the worlds hottest chilli pepper.
With a name like Scorpion, it's not surprising that months of research by the experts at New Mexico State University's Chile Pepper Institute identified this monster variety as the hottest pepper on the planet.
The golf ball-sized pepper scored the 2nd highest among a handful of super hot chilli breeds reputed to be the hottest in the world. Its intense heat has topped more than 1.2 million units on the Scoville heat scale, and fruits from some individual plants reached 2 million scoville heat units.
