Is the Apollo chilli the world’s newest hottest chilli in the world?
An incredibly intense heat build and tears rolling down your cheeks, just a few things that are named to describe the power of the chilli/sauce, but Sean also calls it the most delicious and ferocious chilli Smokin’ Ed ever created. But is the Apollo chilli the new hottest chilli in the world? That remains unclear.
Apollo: a hybrid between the Carolina Reaper and Pepper X
The Apollo chilli is a hybrid between the two hottest creations of Smokin’ Ed until now: the Carolina Reaper (still holding the Guinness world record as hottest chilli) and Pepper X (unofficially the hottest chilli in the world). Heat-wise it will obviously be a monster, but if it will become officially the hottest is unknown at the moment. It should pass the 3 million Scoville Heat Units to pass the Pepper X. Flavor-wise it’s a combination of the ‘fruity’ flavor of the Reaper and the earthy flavour of the Pepper X.
