Can't get enough of the Carolina Reaper? Try this Yellow cousin, the Yellow Reaper pepper! The Yellow Reaper is a cross between the Ghost Pepper and Golden Habanero, which makes a delicious flavor paired with loads of intense heat!

Grow these pepper plants and watch them stretch up to 3-4 ft. tall in your garden. These plants boast high yields of pepper pods with the same shape and bumpy texture. You'll notice some of these 2" pods developing little stingers on the bottoms! Yellow Reapers mature from green to their final bright yellow.

These have a delicious fruity flavor paired with loads of intense heat! The Yellow Reaper pepper Scoville is 1,569,383 - 2,200,000 SHUs, so if you're an inexperienced pepper fanatic, we recommend being very careful when handling or consuming peppers with this much heat. Great for making seafood dishes and anything else from the world’s oceans! Try drying them and using them as a seasoning on your next favorite grilled fish dish!

  • 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.
