Previous Worlds Hottest Chilli Pepper Grown in Cumbria ?!?

I Heard about a new world record Chilli Pepper and quickly look it up, here is the info from the daily mail online, link below for further information. I have tried sauces produced by this man and they are some serious stuff. I'm sure his next sauce 'The Naga Viper Sauce' will not disappoint!!

The Naga Viper rates an astonishing 1,359,000 on the Scoville scale, which measures heat by the presence of the chemical compound capsaicin. (look at the scoville scale on my site to see how this compares) The result is a record breaking chilli that will make your eyes stream, throat burn, nose run and much, much worse.

Experts at Warwick University carried out tests on the chilli and officially declared it the hottest.
It beat competition from the ferocious Bhut Jolokia pod - the previous holder - to take the title of the world’s hottest chilli in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Creator, Gerald Fowler, a full-time chilli farmer for five years, said: ‘When they grow chilli in India or the Caribbean they’re used to the heat and the drought. When they’re grown over here I think they fight back against the harsher climate and produce even more heat.’
