Carolina Reaper Plant Info

In 2013, The Guinness Book of World Records declared the Carolina Reaper as the World’s Hottest Pepper. Talk about some reputation! Our Carolina Reaper plants produce peppers with average heat levels of 1,641,000 Scoville Heat Units, BUT individual peppers have been known to reach up to 2,000,000-2,200,000 Scoville Heat Units. Double Ouch

The Carolina Reaper plant is relatively easy to grow, with peppers that grow beautiful red peppers with rough bumpy skins and long stingers. For a few seconds, you will taste tones of sweet fruitiness and undertones of chocolate and cherries…but then the blinding heat kicks in. You will never be bored with this fan-favorite pepper as you will notice that each Reaper pepper has a unique taste, nutritional profile, pod shape, and plant growth. This pepper is a great value because a little goes a long way; a quarter pod will heat a full pot of chili or spaghetti sauce. The best part about dehydrating peppers is the ability to enjoy them year-round!

WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks. Read more information on how to harden off and transplant pepper plants in 6 steps.

Good yield

These lived up to their name! Good yield and amazing color. I'm still going getting fruit at the end of October. Not sure if I'll purchase again due to the heat level but I was fun to try!
