You can also change the order of the chillies based on their characteristics, here is the summary table!
PLEASE NOTE: You will not find the “Pepper X” nor the “Dragon's Breath”. Why? Because so far they have proved to be extremely unstable and have not reached the quality standards necessary to boast the title of "hottest pepper in the world". Indeed, things are so unclear that officially they are not even considered existing varieties.
