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 SHUs, BUT individual peppers have been known to reach up to 2,200,000 SHUs - double ouch! The Carolina Reaper plant is relatively easy to grow that produces beautiful red peppers with rough bumpy skins and long stingers. For a few seconds, you'll taste tones of sweet fruitiness and undertones of chocolate and cherries…but then the blinding heat kicks in. You will never be bored with one of the world's hottest peppers 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. You can even dehydrate the peppers to enjoy them year-round!
