New 'Hottest Pepper' In The World

Business is on fire for the man who has grown the hottest chili pepper in the world.

Ed Currie spent 12 years cross-breeding peppers to get the most intense heat.

It all paid off in November, when Guinness named his Carolina Reaper Pepper the hottest ever - 300 times hotter than a Jalapeno.

He uses it to make sauce and jellies for his company in South Carolina, the Puckerbutt Pepper Company.
