A: Hello Dave:
The Caribbean Red varieties are among the hottest chiles in the world. The Congo Pepper from Trinidad is unbelievably hot. The Red Savina is probably one of these. These and the Chocolate Caribbean are probably the hottest in the world, according to tests by New Mexico State University.
