Yunnan hybrid chili close to Kunming may be world's spiciest

Yunnan chilis can be spicy, sometimes extremely so. However, for a small company operating near the provincial capital, regular peppers simply are not hot enough. So, for the last several years scientists have been working hard to create what they believe is the world's strongest super pepper. Yunnan Honglü Capsaicin operates experimental chili farms about 90 minutes by car northeast of Kunming. When harvest season rolls around, workers picking the company's bright red hybrid peppers must wear protective clothing, especially over their hands and faces. Even a small smear of oil accidentally squeezed through a pepper's skin can cause minor chemical burns and what Honglü researchers say is "up to six hours of serious physical discomfort."
