Chile, Trinidad (Moruga) Scorpion, Whole
Select size:

In 2011, Guinness World Records confirmed the Trinidad Scorpion Chiles as the hottest chile on the planet. On the Scoville heat scale, used as the standard measurement of a chile's heat level, Scorpion Chiles are a whopping 1.2 million units. As a basis for comparison, the former champ (Ghost Chile) measures just over 1 million units. Habanero Chiles, hot by common standards, are between 150 and 250 thousand Scoville units. This means that eating a Trinidad Scorpion Chile is the equivalent of eating a Ghost Chile and Habanero at the same time!

Be aware that Scorpion Chiles can inflict serious pain when eaten. Consume at your own risk. These chiles are 1.2 million Scoville units. Wear gloves and wash utensils with soap and water when finished.

These chiles can be eaten in their dehydrated whole form, ground into a powder, or rehydrated and used as fresh. To rehydrate soak chiles in hot tap water for 20 minutes. Soaking longer than that an cause the chiles to become bitter. Try in pickling, salsa, sauces, and more.

One of the hottest in the world, this chile originated in Trinidad.
"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
