what is the hottest pepper in the world?
Hotness of pepper is measured in scoville, which is the proportion of dilution you need to neutralize the pepper powder in sugar-water, so that at least humans don't detect any hotness at all. The winners are two Thai peppers, Bhut Jolokia and Naga Jolokia, which have 1000000 scoville. Pepper-spray has about 2000000-5000000.
Pure Capsaicin (the substance which causes the hotness) has 16000000. However, I don't think it's easy to get it pure, because it can be lethal in large quantities.
I am the hottest pepper in the world, baby! I am SAUCY. ;)
Seriously, I don't know, but I will do some research for you and see what I can come up with.
