In 2013, The Guinness Book of World Records declared the Carolina Reaper the “World’s Hottest Pepper.” Our Carolina Reaper Seeds produce peppers with average heat levels of 1,569,300 SHUs, but individual peppers have been known to reach up to 2,000,000-2,200,000 SHUs!

Carolina Reapers are relatively easy to grow, but original seeds are difficult to find anywhere else! Watch as these pepper plants stretch up to 5 ft. tall and produce these fiery-hot red pods that look like they're caving in on themselves! The original Carolina Reapers feature little stingers like their super hot counterpart, the Scorpion pepper.

This infamous pepper has a fruity and sweet/hot aroma, with a pleasant undertone of chocolate/cherry taste. The flavor is certainly not sacrificed for the extreme heat. 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.

Very Excited. 10 Bought 100% Germination Rate.

I'm very excited that these turned out so well. All ten germinated successfully. I can't wait until these produce peppers, now for the hard part. Waiting.Thanks for getting me my money's worth on the hefty price tag. I was not disappointed.

The plants are doing well, but the fruits are developing a black discoloration on the stem end of the peppers. It doesn't seem to be rot as the flesh seems to be firm under the discoloration. Any ideas what this is or if it is a normal part of maturation of the peppers?

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review. We would be happy to look into this for you. Please email a picture of your plants along with your order number to us at
