Let’s compare: Calabrian chili v.s. Carolina Reaper

The cuisine of the Italian region called Calabria is known for its spicy cuisine. But Calabrian chili, where is it positioned in the Scoville scale? It is found in the last positions, that is among the less spicy chillies. So, I leave it to you to understand the level of spiciness of a chili like Carolina Reaper, which touches the 2,000,000 SHU.

To take precautions: wash your hands after touching the chili peppers or equip yourself with very resistant gloves and do not pass anything. Finally, do not touch your eyes or other sensitive areas of the body because you could spend hours in hell! Back to List.
