How hot is the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion?
If there could be a category on the Scoville scale named “sweat just thinking about them” hot, the Trinidad Scorpion pepper would be one of those leading the pack. These things make a jalapeño look like child’s play − on average they are 475 times hotter, ranging from 1,200,000 Scoville heat units to an eye-popping 2,000,000 SHU. Even the extremely hot habanero pepper is way distant in total heat. The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion is at least 12 times hotter, with the potential for 20 times hotter if you get the right pepper.
