Dried scorpion chiles.
Among the world's hottest chile peppers, scorpion chiles (Capsicum chinense) originated in the South American islands of Trinidad, but fans of hot chiles selectively breed strains to create even hotter varieties. Cultivated for their extremely hot, fruity flavor, scorpion chiles are produced and available in small scale.
The second-hottest known peppers in the world, our Scorpion Chiles are perfect for the few who enjoy extremely intense heat. A very small amount is all it takes to turn this tropical mango salsa sweltering hot. Wear gloves and eye protection when handling Scorpion Chiles as they can irritate the skin and sting eyes.
