The Chilli Factory - Setting the World on Fire!
Official Guinness World Record
Over the past 2 years (March 2011) since we have had the Guinness World Record there have been stories in newspapers and on-line about the fact that we:
- Tested only one pod of chilli so our record is an incident
- Are not commercial growers???
- Have not tested it Scientifically
Well guess what?
- This is how we test our chillies, See photo...
This is what we send to the lab for testing! And we do this on a regular base too!! (So no not one test and got lucky and certainly NOT ONE POD!!)
OK I wear glasses so I am bias but.... does that look like one pod to you?
Randomly picked offcourse and so the measurement will be an average!! I think the Yanks call that MEAN of various Scorpion Pods from various plants AND from different chilli fields.
We have 8,500 Scorpion plants to choose from is that commercial enough?
So the Guinness World Record was:
- Tested more than one pod, tick
- 8,500 Trinidad plants, commercial growers, tick
- Scientifically tested and averaged/MEAN heat, tick
Anybody telling you differently just tell them to read this ... and yes we have had to send a scientifically correct tested, backed up by THREE horticulturists pack with lots of information to Guinness World Record to PROOF we did it Scientifically!
The OFFICIAL GUINNESS WORLD RECORD is STILL standing!! even after TWO years so no matter what anybody else CLAIMS. You need PROOF of your record to GET IT!!! AND IT HAS TO BE BACKED UP AND AVERAGED OKAY?
OUR RECORD is AVERAGE/MEAN heat of: 1,463,700 Scoville Units.
NOT single pod we do not measure single pods we have NO interest in one single pod measurements.
Thanks for your time...

Do not worry we will be back!!! Working on it...
