Just when you thought superhots couldn’t get any crazier, the Dragon’s Breath chili is born. This insanely hot pepper is no joke. Seeds and fruit should be handled with extreme caution. We grew these out in 2021 and quickly learned to only cut these outside wearing a double layer of gloves. Dragon’s Breath peppers have a medium-thick wall and ooze with nostril stinging capsaicin oil when opened up. The Dragon’s Breath pepper was developed in the UK and named after the official symbol of Whales, the Welsh Dragon. Apparently, they’re trying to use the capsaicin from this superhot chili to develop a new topical anesthetic for people that are allergic to traditional ones. Dragon’s Breath hasn’t officially dethroned the Carolina Reaper as World’s Hottest Pepper, but unofficial tests are reporting above 2,400,000 SHUs. We're not so sure it is hotter, but we'll let you decide. This newer pepper variety is very productive and very hot but still unstable. The plants we grew in 2021 produced pods quite bigger than what others have reported growing. Get ahold of these popular seeds while we have them and grow your own Dragon’s Breath pepper plants.

Dragon’s breath

I grew a dragon’s breath last year, and it was the hottest pepper I have ever tasted. It was also the best tasting super hot I have ever tasted. Carolina Reapers pale in comparison. Don’t prepare it indoors!

Slow Growing season this year

Had to pull peppers before they were all fully mature. Chocolate reapers almost all were mature,but the Primatolli’s maybe 60 %made maturity . We had an early killin frost down here this year unfortunately but the heat in the peppers is awesome. Thanks Pepper Joe!

Dragon Breath Pepper seeds

I ordered the Dragon Breath pepper seeds from Pepper Joe's. I received 10 seeds in the mail, planted them. And only 1 seed sprouted and came up. Not impressed with the fertility of the seeds sent me if only 1 seed out of 10 seedscame up.

Looking good

I started the first week of January under LED grow lights and heat mats. All the seeds germinated. The leaves along with the height are on par with my 7pot Primos and Carolina Reapers started the same day. Some will stay in the grow tent and the rest will be moved outside. Will do a full review after harvest!
