The Trinidad Scorpion is a variety of the Capsicum chinense species, which is of the bonnet family of peppers. Its gnarly appearance strongly resembles the habanero and the Scotch Bonnet but the Trinidad Scorpion has both of these peppers beat with its extreme heat! The only other pepper listed by the Guinness Book of World Records that beats the Trinidad Scorpion pepper is the Carolina Reaper pepper. Second place may generally be considered a losing position, but in the case of the World’s Hottest Peppers, that’s not necessarily true.
