dragon’s breath seeds

We acquired our seeds directly from the original grower in the UK and grew these out two years ago. The Dragon’s Breath pepper is named for the symbol of Wales – the Welsh dragon. It is believed to be the unofficial world’s hottest pepper with a reported peak heat of 2.48 million Scoville heat units. Is it myth or reality? We cannot prove either and no official tests have been performed to back up these claims but I can tell you from firsthand experience this pepper is one of the hottest we have grown. The smell and pungency of the capsaicin knocks you down when the chili is cut into as the capsaicin oil pours out.

Heat level: 2,000,000++(SHU) Scoville Heat Units – Nuclear Heat.

Warning: Handling this pepper requires extreme caution. Wear hand, eye, and breathing protection.

Peppers are 1 to 2″ long and taper to a point and sometimes have a tail. They have red bumpy skin and a strong floral aroma. The capsaicin oil inside oozes and drips and produces plenty of painful heat that dissipates slowly. Dragon’s Breath is a serious rival for the Carolina Reaper’s heat level. Plants grow over 3′ tall and are very productive. Capsicum chinense (100 days)

Q: How can this be the real Dragon’s Breath?

The Dragon’s Breath pepper is a super-hot, mind-blowing, out of this world pepper. It has a reported peak heat of 2.48 million Scoville heat units and has been submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records for consideration as the hottest pepper in the world. There is not a lot of solid information yet about its average heat range or overall stability. Time will tell where the Dragon’s Breath officially falls in the ranking of super-hots. Will it be the hottest?

Capsicum chinense strains require a great deal of attention during the germination process. Moisture and a constant and consistent heat range must be maintained. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 14 – 28 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil 4′ apart.

A: The Dragon’s Breath pepper is a real super hot pepper discovered by a UK grower who made claims that it was the world’s hottest. Some media articles hyped it up further by saying it was hot enough to kill you. The truth is it is a very hot and productive variant of the 7 Pot Infinity pepper. The Dragon’s Breath pepper is real but hasn’t been proven to be the world’s new hottest pepper yet and has never been documented to kill a person.

A packet contains 5 seeds.

The owner of Tom Smith’s Plants in the United Kingdom, Mike Smith, developed this record-breaking pepper with researchers at the University of Nottingham. It was being developed and tested for a natural capsaicin anesthetic useful for those allergic to typical medical anesthetics.

Heat Level: Mind-Blowing.

**In 2021, we stopped offering Dragon’s Breath Pepper seeds as they were not growing consistently so we don’t believe they are yet a stable strain of pepper. We may offer them again in the future if they prove to be stable, so stay tuned.

Scoville: 2,000,000 or more.
