Description:

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.

We have a wide selection of variants in our Carolina Pepper Seeds collection, as well as our page of Super Hot Pepper Seeds!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • 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.
