A tradition that started 3 years ago, see blog entry for 29th November 2013 'Hot & Spicy, With A Slice Of Orange', has just got a little hotter. A 'Chilli-Box', containing some super hot chilli peppers, was given to the team by the chefs to put on the tree but, due to their very high SHC, Scoville Heat Unit values, (The Scoville scale is used to measure the heat of chilli peppers), had to be put at the top section of the tree out of reach from any brave soul that may be tempted to take a bite out of the Christmas decorations, which does happen every year!

Adding extra heat to the top of the Christmas tree, the chillies, Yellow Scorpion, Wrinkly Pink Bhut, Big Brown Bhut, Naga Nightshade, The Dementor chilli and Carolina Reaper, range in SHC values from 250,000 to 1.5million respectively, with the latter being the Guinness World Record Holder for the hottest chilli.
