New Record Broken Again!
Taken from our English friends at the Chile Foundry here is their link to the story:
Australian Chile seed grower Neil from Hippyseeds Pepper Company, who has been a YouTube sensation with his super hot Chile pepper eating and my inspiration to use YouTube for ILoveItSpicy now claims to have the new record. He is reporting on his Twitter page to have a Trinidad Scorpion pepper that has tested over 1.46 million Scoville units. This surpasses the Naga Viper which was over 1.3 million. The Nada Viper didn’t have the record a month before this new claim. This Trinidad Scorpion strain is called the “Butch T” Scorpion named after “Feast Your Eyes on This” contestant and Zydeco Hot Sauce owner, Butch Taylor. Congrats to Neil and to Butch T with his connection to this pepper. Here is Neil’s Twitter page:

At this point, what’s a few hundred scoville units between friends? :_dancingdevil:
Why not a 5 minute hug between friends Thomas?
My guess is that it’s another hoax, like the Purple Naga or the guy from Taiwan with the Chilli Museum.
that pepper is really hot and is used by the locals here a lot. I had an uncle who would lay it out in bread and eat it as is like a sandwich. I am from Trinidad that pepper taste really good in “chow”.
Thanks for stopping by Kris and given us some inside info on the chile. Welcome to ILIS.

Hey chili lovers!
I’m from Holland and i’ve had 3 butch T seeds but they all three died on me! 🙁 i;ve cried all day…
Welcome Eva. Sorry you had bad luck with your seeds. Try the web banner on the left called Refining Fire Chiles, and see what Jim can hook you up with.
Dont eat the Butch T. My mate grew me one and made me eat it whole. i told him repeatedly i wasnt stupid enough to eat the worlds hottest chilli but one evening drunk i decided to give it a go. I swallowed it straight away thinking i could avoid the burn but I spent the next hour feeling extremely ill. My head was spnning, I was sweating, my insides felt like they were rotting away, tears streaming down my face, and then after about an hour, i threw it up and felt fine! Never doing again and would never recomment it but at least I can say i have.
