Master grower Carlos Jr. was growing a bunch of Carolina Reapers in Brazil when he ended up creating this purple beauty by accident. It’s unknown what crossed with the Red Reaper, but whatever it was, we’re glad it happened! The Purple Reaper Chili is a fantastic variant with a unique color and the same fiery heat.

Purple Reaper pepper plants grow tall, as high as 4 ft., producing plenty of these fiery devils! The plants tend to perform better with a little bit of shade, so don't plant them directly in full sun. Purple Reapers aren't fully stable yet but expect to see a lot of beautiful colors and signature pepper attributes, such as stingers forming at the ends of the pods. These fruits start purple then turn green/purple and eventually dark red/brown color when they reach maturity.

The flavor of the Purple Reaper is more fruity than a Red Reaper but has less floral flavor. Nevertheless, the heat is said to be slightly less than the Carolina Reaper, but not much! Still enough to be considered one of the hottest peppers in the world. Purple Reaper chili peppers are great for hot sauce and chili powder!

Replacement Seeds came quickly

I received my replacement Seeds quickly.

They should be good because I have 24 flowering pepper plants that are 12"- 24" tall and of which I started from Seeds.
