Some super hot peppers are varieties that have been collected throught the Caribbean, but others have been created by selective breeding. Many super hots are newer varieties that have been chosen and developed, and have not been around for too many years. There is conflicting information on how many years a pepper must be grown out to become stable, but the more years the better. It also varies by variety. Because of this, some super hots may produce slight variations from the original strain.
Please have common sense when using super hot peppers, especially around children and others who are not familar with or suited for their extreme spiciness. Dairy products like milk, yogurt or ice cream, and starches like banana, bread or crackers, will help calm the burn.
