Cayenne Diane 201 Pepper Gal
I love everything spicy! So much so that I created a site that shares my passion for growing hot peppers and discovering all kinds of spicy foods.

Pepper X has not, to date, been declared the hottest pepper in the world. Pepper X is one of Ed Currie's creation, so is the Carolina Reaper. I think Ed kinda prematurely claimed it was hotter than Reapers, and who... (More)
