The hottest pepper on earth is the newly formed Trinidad Scorpion Butch T pepper. It measures at 1,463,700 Scoville heat units. In comparison a jalapeno pepper measures a mere 8,000 units at the most. They are so hot that wearing protective gloves is a must, and safety equipment is needed if one wishes to cook it.
