There’s no holding back with the new and fiery KAOS x Purple Reaper pepper! With heat levels reaching as high as 1,800,000 SHUs, this incendiary cross between the KAOS pepper and the Purple Reaper will have you melting to the floor!

KAOS x Purple Reaper peppers are real eye-catchers, resembling similar shapes to that of the Carolina Reaper; however, some of the stingers can get really long. These pods reach to about 2-3” in length (depending on the stinger size) and start off with a nice green hue before changing to a splotchy purplish color, and finally ripening to red. Watch these pepper plants grow up to 4 ft. and produce very high yields of these small, super hot peppers!

We recommend using protective gear when using and handling this pepper, as the capsaicin levels are high enough to burn your skin, eyes, and nose. Just like other Reaper peppers, they have nice fruity and floral flavors once you get past the insane heat. KAOS x Purple Reaper peppers are incredible for drying and grounding into a nice super hot chili powder that you can use (sparingly!) on any food. If you’re daring enough, you can eat these peppers fresh, but as a warning, these super hot peppers aren’t for the faint of heart!

Note: This variety is still unstable. Your grow results could vary, including shape and color of pods.

  • 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.
