Meet the Apollo pepper: the world’s newest hottest pepper!?

Meet the Apollo pepper: the world’s newest hottest pepper!?

Is the Apollo pepper the new hottest pepper in the world?

Yesterday Sean Evans revealed the new hot sauces for the 13th season of Hot Ones. Down below you can watch the full reveal, in which we see a few familiar brands and sauces, but the biggest surprise of all was the new number 10: The Last Dab Apollo. A new version of Hot Ones’ own hot sauce, made with a completely new pepper: The Apollo pepper. It’s Smokin’ Ed Currie’s latest creation and according to Sean Evans it’s his most ferocious creation ever.

Is the APollo pepper the world’s newest hottest pepper in the world?

An incredibly intense heat build and tears rolling down your cheecks, just a few things that are named to describe the power of the pepper/sauce, but Sean also calls it the most delicious and ferocious pepper Smokin’ Ed ever created. Showrunner Chris Schonberger even doubted if it should be in the show, because it might be too intense for celebrities. But is the Apollo pepper the new hottest pepper in the world? That remains unclear.

Apollo: a hybrid between the Carolina Reaper and Pepper X

The Apollo pepper is a hybrid between the two hottest creations of Smokin’ Ed until now: the Carolina Reaper (still holding the Guiness world record as hottest pepper) and Pepper X (unofficially the hottest pepper in the world). Heat-wise it will obviously be a monster, but if it will become officially the hottest is unknown at the moment. It should pass the 3 million Scoville Heat Units to pass the Pepper X. Flavor-wise it’s a combination of the ‘fruity’ flavor of the Reaper and the earthy flavor of the Pepper X. According to Sean it is by far the hottest version of the Last Dab ever.

So although it’s still unclear if this is the newest hottest pepper in the world, it might say something that this pepper actually got a ‘real’ name, instead of the Pepper X which was always kind of a project name for the pepper until it was officially tested. That still hasn’t happened. Anyway, this Apollo pepper will definitely get a spot at the top of the hottest peppers in the world. Here you can check out a cool overview of all the peppers in the world ranked by their Scoville score.

    pepper x is a scam. Apollo does not exist well. the hottest pepper i ate is the 7pot brain strain provided by magic plant farms. going to try their carolina reaper next week.

      LOL look at this. Hey dude, nobody asked, nobody cared, and nobody thinks the palate of some mouth breathing, internet troll, is worth anything. keep your opinions to yourself and your sister-wife.

        How mature of you Ed.

    I agree with Dave. Pepper x is a good way of making money for Ed…. where is it? I grew peppers for a living and made hot sauces i sold at retail and wholesale. Primo and Brain sauces ALWAYS hotter than Reaper. Brand sauces based on Reaper are usually mild compared to the other superhots. Ed….dave just had an opinion and I do care , I do think his palate is on the level.

    Here’s my opinion…and although I occasionally mouth breath after a long night of savagery, I think schmokin ed is a bad ass and producing some of the world’s hottest and most revolutionary products, and if u don’t like it… let’s see u do better. Also, i agree with Ed, if you’re too inbred to complete a coherent sentence then your opinion is invalid.

    Most chiliheads know Pepper X is a just a marketing gimmick from the guy who ripped off the 7-Pot Primo and called it the Carolina Reaper.

    There are plenty of impressive plants out there that are not make believe and are just as intense as anything else you can find. Reapers, Pepper X and Apollo are all outdated and obsolete anyway. They belong in a retirement home or a museum.

    The new ones making their rounds are far superior to those old Creapers.
