Product Description

Death Spiral peppers (a.k.a. Death peppers) are some of the gnarliest super-hot chilies you’ll ever see or taste. Their heat hits at roughly 1,400,000 Scoville heat units, putting it right up there with the Carolina Reaper in overall spiciness, but without the consistency needed to challenge for the title of hottest pepper yet. What make it unique is the twisted, brain-like folds of the pod itself. It just looks like pain. Though, underneath, there’s a surprising fruity sweetness here (if you can get past the heat.) The panel is out on the Scoville heat range of this chili. Some say 1,300,000 Scoville heat units, others say 1,500,000 SHU or even higher. We’ll call it, 1,400,000 SHU for argument’s sake. It’s all over the place because, as a newer chili strain, it isn’t always consistent from seed to seed, in heat, looks, and flavor (as you’ll see.) What is known is this is one super-hot chili pepper that rivals the other hottest peppers in the world, even without the official title.Of course, compared to our jalapeño reference point, this is a no contest in the spiciness department. Jalapeños range from 2,500 to 8,000 SHU. If we use 1,400,000 SHU as the median heat, the Death Spiral pepper is between 175 and 560 times hotter than a jalapeño. Note: This level of spiciness is significant, so any handling of Death Spiral peppers should be done with utmost care. Use gloves, kitchen glasses, and other precautions to keep oils from this pepper off your skin.
