In Rock Hill, North Carolina, one man is on a quest to grow the world’s hottest pepper. And he may have achieved that goal. He’s still waiting to hear back from Guinness World Records on whether or not his pepper is hotter than the Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T” from Australia, currently the hottest certified in the world.

Here’s how Ed Currie knew he was getting somewhere with his potentially record-breaking hot pepper:

“The first time we tried it, out of the six of us…four puked. So I knew I was on the right path, you know,” Currie says.

Currie tests different combinations of food, water, and mineral intake to see which one creates the hottest pepper. And he thinks he’s found it. Right now he calls the pepper HP22B. Guinness World Records officials are looking at the pepper to see if it is indeed the world’s hottest.

I would say Marshall Terry, a reporter for Charlotte’s flagship National Public Radio station WFAE already has the verdict.
