This strain is in the Guinness World Records for the hottest chilli in the World at just over 1.4million SHU's. That's 300,000 SHU's hotter than the old record holder from India - Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Chilli).
Butch Taylor is the American guy who grew out this strain and passed on seeds to people on chilli growing forums. Hence the name Trinidad Scorpion Butch T. An Australian sauce company then got hold of the seeds and grew them. They sent the pods away for testing and they came in as the new hottest chilli. These are very similar and originate from the Trinidad Scorpion but have been selected over many years for particular qualities- the main one being heat levels.
