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 Scoville Heat Units (SHU's), 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! 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.

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. Reapers are also great to dehydrate and grind up into Carolina Reaper powder or Carolina Reaper flakes that can be used to season all types of meat and cheese including Carolina Reaper Beef JerkyCarolina Reaper Cheddar Cheese, and Carolina Reaper Summer Sausage! The best part about dehydrating peppers is the ability to enjoy them year-round!

So far so good!!

Bought these in 2022 to avoid missing out this spring! All planted seeds germinated, and are now several inches high and in 3.5" pots. Will be able to transfer to the garden within a month. Over two years my germination rate for Pepper Joes seeds is over 90%; the Monzano seeds didn't skunk me but dropped the percentage a bit.
