The ‘superhots’ are habanero chillies that measure over 500,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), and given the right environment are capable of reaching a million SHU or more. The heat levels we quote are from tests we’ve had done at Sea Spring Seeds on the whole crop, not on individual fruit quoting just the highest result.
All superhot chillies must be treated with great care and respect. We have three rules: never dare, never bet and NEVER trick someone into eating a superhot chilli.
