“It takes a minute or two to kick in and then it’s just an extreme intense sensation” Alex De Wit
Who would have thought that the world’s hottest chilli would be grown in Australia – just north of Sydney.
The Scorpion Chilli holds the title of the hottest chilli in the world and is not to be messed with. It has brought the biggest. bravest and most fool hardy chilli eaters to their knees.
It is grown by Marcel, Connie & Alex de Wit at the Chilli Factory at Morrisett on the New South Wales Central Coast.
It’s rated at 1,463,700 Scoville units (the official measurement of chilli heat) and has been certified as the hottest chilli in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records.
This is the sort of chilli that will burn your hands just by touching it and is certainly an acquired taste.
“Every time we do a taste test or a show we always have people that collapse or faint” Alex De Wit
If the world’s hottest chill isn’t for you then the guys at the Chilli Factory have an excellent range of chilli sauces available for all palates and level of chilli expertise (or bravery).
Go on..give them a try..we dare you.
We hope you enjoy the World’s HOTTEST Chilli story on Food Wine Dine.
