Want world-class heat but with a unique growing twist? Our Purple Carolina Reaper Pepper Plants produce uniquely-colored Carolina Reapers, currently the hottest pepper in the world! These pepper seedlings will grow up to 4 ft. tall with great yields of these peppers. Ripening from purple to a greenish purple, then finally to a red/dark brown color at maturity, you may notice a little bit of variation in the growing, as these peppers aren’t completely stable yet. What’s constant is the incredibly hot pepper heat this Reaper contains, reaching over 1,600,000 SHUs and scorching every last taste bud you have! Purple Carolina Reapers are perfect for dried chili powders and hot sauces.


  • Seedling Size: 4-6”
  • Species: Capsicum Chinense
  • Heat Level: 1,600,000+ SHUs
  • Type: Super Hot
  • Origin: Brazil


    These Purple Carolina Reaper pepper seedlings were carefully grown from seed in our greenhouse and are guaranteed to arrive alive and healthy. Promptly follow the instructions included in your plant box and enjoy watching these plants grow!

    GROW TIP: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks. Read more information on how to harden off and transplant pepper plants in 6 steps.
