Who loves a pepper with a story? That is the Vic Nic 1313. Bred by a Brazilian man, Fabio Tuma in an attempt to dethrone the Carolina Reaper. Named after his twin daughters Victoria and Nicole – born the 13th of the month – in the year 2013. Zing! Reaper and Trinidad Moruga Scorpion cross. This pepper is as close as you can get to certifiably reaching Carolina Reaper heat. With the nature of superhots and heat variability depending on growing conditions – no doubt these bad Larry’s can exceed well over 1.8 million SHU.
1600000 SHU+ This is an estimate. Scoville ratings will change based on growing conditions. Rarer superhots may still have genetic instability in heat expression.
