This is an amazing variety created by Butch Taylor himself! The two-parent plants are a Trinidad Scorpion Butch T and a Carolina Reaper. One is a previous world record holder, and the other is the current world record holder!

These pepper plants will grow up to 3 ft. tall and produce high yields of these 2" long peppers. BTR pods have an appearance similar to a Moruga Scorpion, but with a much thinner outer wall. They mature from green to dark orange/red color when it reaches maturity. Butch T Reaper peppers take longer to mature, however, they grow well in warm and cool climates.

The flavor is very floral and citrus upfront, with a burn like nothing we have ever tasted before! The heat is screamingly hot and packs a punch that will BEAT YOU UP, but if you love that kind of heat, then we can only say to grow it. On our heat scale, we give them an 11 out of 10, but we haven't had them "officially" tested yet.

Enjoy other Super Hot Pepper varieties, including the beloved Carolina Reaper Pepper Seeds as well as our stinging-hot Scorpion Seeds!

The description of the pepper fits it to a "T", literally. You can taste all it's flavors until the heat comes. It's great.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
