A New Breed of Spicy Pepper Is So Hot That It Can Actually Kill You

Share This

No matter how much of a heat fiend you claim to be, no matter how many raw atarodos (scotch bonnet peppers) you can eat or shots of hot sauce you can withstand, you definitely can't handle this....

One man from St. Asaph, North Wales has bred a new type of spicy chili pepper that has obliterated previous heat records. It's called Dragon's Breath, and it's so outrageously spicy that it has the potential to kill anyone who ingests it.

The Dragon's Breath chili pepper might as well be classified as a lethal weapon.
It weighs in at a surface-of-the-sun heat of 2.48 million on the Scoville scale, eclipsing the runner up -the Carolina Reaper - which comes in at 2.2 million.
Dragon's Breath peppers are about 22 times as hot as habanero peppers, and a whopping 300 times as spicy as jalapeños. Just for a bit of perspective, military-grade weaponized pepper spray registers at just 2 million on the Scoville charts.
Mike Smith, the owner of Tom Smith Plants and the evil genius who developed the Dragon's Breath breed, said:
"It’s not been tried orally. I’ve tried it on the tip of my tongue and it just burned and burned...
I spat it out in about 10 seconds. The heat intensity just grows.”

As Smith said, the pepper hasn't been fully ingested by any human beings, and for good reason. The insane concentration of capsaicin in Dragon's Breath chilis can literally burn the fleshy membranes of one's airways, causing them to close up and cause anaphylactic shock, most likely leading to death if not immediately treated.
But, apparently, these peppers were never meant to be consumed for food (or some sick masochistic tastebud torture) in the first place.
According to Mike Smith, the Dragon's Breath chili was developed to treat people with chronic skin ailments who may also be allergic to commonly used anesthetics and topical creams.

The pepper is so hot that its extract can be used to numb the skin. While yes, eating spicy foods in moderation can prolong your life, if ingested, the Dragon's Breath chili can promptly end it.
So don't get any ideas, all you reckless spicy daredevils...
