Coming in at over 1,500,000 Scoville Heat Units, the Komodo Dragon was the hottest commercially grown pepper in the UK at the time of its release in 2015.
The Komodo Dragon's heat is not instant and instead builds and builds. The flavor starts out with a delicious fruitiness but is then followed by the ridiculous fire breathing heat of the Komodo Dragon. This is a pepper for those who are experienced with super-hot peppers. The Komodo Dragon pepper resembles a combination of a 7 Pot and a Ghost pepper. It starts off green and ripens to red.
