NAGA VIPER: 1,382,118 SHU Briefly the world's hottest chilli in 2011.

TRINIDAD MORUGA SCORPION: 1,200,000 SHU Another former record breaker from Trinidad and Tobago.

CHOCOLATE HABALOKIA: c800,000 SHU This brown beast is a fiendish cross between chocolate habanero and a Ghost Chile - the Indian bhut jolokia.
