World record holder for a short period. The Naga Viper pepper was the official holder of the Guinness World Records "World's Hottest Chilli" record as of 25 February 2011. The Naga Viper pepper, with its rating of1,382,118 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), beat the previous record holder, the Infinity Chilli. The pepper's record has been exceeded by the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T pepper, The Trinidad Moruga Pepper and more recently the Carolina Reaper. A must have for serious Chilli enthusiasts.

Important to Note.

Chilli peppers can be tricky to germinate and especially so with the rarer super hot varieties patience is needed as they can take up to 40 days to germinate in ideal conditions. We also recommend that a heat pad is used when germinating chillies of the Capsicum chinense species. All of our chillis are grown in isolation to avoid cross pollination. As chillis are rampant cross pollinators it is not uncommon for variances to appear in the fruit as chillis can cross pollinate with fruit from plants a few houses or kilometres away. The only way to ensure with 100% certainty that cross pollination does not occur is to use pollination bags on each flower when the plant starts to bud and before the flowers open.
