I love jalapeños! One time I couldn't find them at the grocery (they move stuff around frequently), but a clerk told me that the Anaheim pepper/New Mexico chile is "basically the same, but bigger". That was second-hand information, presumably from another clerk. What can you tell me about peppers? :)
ok so this is a little on the extreme side of the pepper botany genre but dude last year this pepper breeder in the UK accidentally bred the hottest pepper known to man (x)
okay so like this is the deal with this pepper. this is called “dragon’s breath” and was developed as part of a completely unrelated food testing trial between local breeder Mike Smith and Nottingham Trent University and like. this pepper is hot. like it hasn’t been confirmed for the world’s hottest yet (the Guinness book of world records is working on it) but like. it registers at 2.48m on the Scoville scale. for scale the US military uses pepper spray thats 2m.
this pepper is so hot that if you ate it it could literally kill you by forcing your body into shock.
this pepper is also so hot that it numbs your skin, so scientists have identified it as a possible local anesthetic.
mike tried it when it first came up and he bit a little bit of it and even though he immediately spat it out because of the pain it burned his mouth for two days. apparently it gets hotter over time.
so there u go. idk if that was the information you were expecting from me on this topic but thats the pepper so hot u could literally die
1026. When Snape died, the first person there to greet him was Lily. She walked up to him and punched him in the face, demanding answers as to 'WHY THE HELL DID YOU VERBALLY ABUSE MY SON FOR SEVEN YEARS???'
