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.

BTR reaper scorpion seeds

Ordered the BTR seeds a few weeks ago. Started all ten seeds and noticed this morning I have ten out of ten sprouts. Can’t wait to get peppers from each plant. Thank you pepper Joe’s.


Germination was poor, 2/10, both plants produced pods. They are truly "super hot", also quite productive if you can get them to germinate. Good luck figuring out what to do with them they are so hot!
