Elijah's Xtreme Newsroom - Profile and News Archive

Elijah’s Xtreme was born from a father and son’s love of hot peppers and passion to create a more flavorful, thicker, hotter, hot sauce.

Elijah was just 5 years old when he first helped his father prepare hot pepper seedlings for spring planting. It was the next year, when a smiling 6 year old Elijah came to his father in the garden and said, “Dad, what do I need to do to be the youngest person to eat the worlds hottest pepper?”

At that his dad gave him a hot banana pepper and said, “start here.” It was that first bite that sent Elijah running for water and began his passion for hot peppers and hot sauces.

After more than a decade of growing a variety of hot peppers and tinkering with homemade hot sauce recipes, late in the summer of 2013 the father and son team created the perfect balance of heat and flavor. The two sent out over 100 samples and the feedback was great... everyone loved it, saying the same thing... “it’s hot, but has great flavor”! With that his dad named their creation, Elijah’s Xtreme!

Elijah’s Xtreme™ Ghost Pepper Sauce officially launched in June of 2014.
