About the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Chili Pepper

The growers named the pepper the "Trinidad Scorpion Butch T", after Butch Taylor, who propagated the chili peppers in 2011. This chili pepper is the possible cross between a Trinidad Scorpion and a yet-to-be-named chili pepper that Butch is holding close to his chest in hopes of creating even hotter peppers in the future.

The previous record holder was the Naga Viper, measuring 1.38 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU). It is possible that the Naga Viper is really a Scorpion Pepper, but his is hotter.

The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T  measures in at a blistering 1,463,700 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). A typical jalapeno pepper measures around 5,000 SHU, while a habanero pepper measures up to 350,000 SHU.

One of the hottest chili peppers in the world
