The hottest chilli in the world has been developed in the market town of Grantham, Lincs, in the UK.
(Called the "Infinity Chilli" it has gained the title "hottest chilli in the world" after tests revealed it has a Scoville
Scale Rating of 1,176,182 - hotter than the kind of chilli reportedly used in hand
grenades by the Indian military. To put this in perspective 2,000,000 is the Scoville rating for military grade pepper spray. If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, then you don't know much about the British male. In the UK the ability to eat the hottest chilli is a real sign of manliness.)
