Scoville Heat Units: 1,400,000 – 2,200,000 SHU

The Komodo Dragon Chili Pepper is one of the hottest peppers in the world, measuring in at 1,400,000 – 2,200,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).

Grown by the UK’s largest producer of peppers, Salvatore Genovese, who has a seven-acre farm in Blunham, Bedfordshire. He seems to have made it his goal to produce hotter and hotter chilies. Looking forward to his future work.

The Komodo Dragon pepper was announced in 2015 and sold in Tesco stores.

What Does a Komodo Dragon Pepper Taste Like?

The Komodo Dragon pepper has a notable fruity taste, but carries with it a delayed heat and blooms, very much like a 7 Pot Chili Pepper.

How Hot is the Komodo Dragon Pepper?

As the Scoville Heat Units measure in at 1,400,000 – 2,200,000, this is one of the hottest peppers in the world. Compare it to a typical jalapeno pepper heat of about 5,000 SHU (the range is 2,500 – 8,000), this makes the Komodo Dragon pepper 175-880 times hotter.

That is crazy hot!
