A group of Australians is seeking world record status for a new variety of chilli, a bright red pepper so potent that processing it for eating requires gas masks and protective chemical warfare-like clothing.Also, it looks like kangaroos may get their day in court.
The "Trinidad Scorpion Butch T" chilli, a mere 2.5 cm (1 inch) long, comes it at a fiery 1.46 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU) per chilli, according to testing by Melbourne firm EML Chemical == taking it well past the Naga Viper British Chilli, the current Guinness record-holder at 1.38 million SHU.
