Hottest Pepper 2021

 

Hottest Pepper 2021 – Grow Carolina Reaper Seeds from SandiaSeed.com



Hottest Pepper 2021 – Carolina Reaper Seeds
You got that right, the Hottest Pepper in 2021 is still the Carolina Reaper! The wicked Carolina Reaper still  will likely hold the Guinness World Record crown again in 2021 for being the world's hottest pepper. Unless someone happens to invest in getting a pepper tested prior to the end of 2020, which we highly doubt in this age of Covid-19. The problem is that it is difficult and expensive to test peppers to get into the book of world records, so since the Reaper took the crown in 2013, no one has made this happen with any of the new peppers that have been developed. Lots of pepper breeders claim that their peppers are hotter than the Reaper, but none have gotten the Guinness nod yet. 

History of the Carolina Reaper: Ed Currie first bred this pepper in South Carolina.

We don't recommend eating these whole unless you just like pain. We think they taste amazing in our Carolina Reaper Hot Sauce or a wicked Carolina Reaper Salsa. You can also tame their heat just a tiny bit, while creating amazing flavor with a Fermented Hot Sauce made from Carolina Reapers. 

 

 

Hottest Pepper 2021: Try the Yellow Carolina Reaper
If you like the Reaper, make sure to try growing our Yellow Carolina Reaper which is wicked hot but in brilliant yellow!


Will eating a Carolina Reaper Kill You? 


Speaking of other super hot peppers, don't miss the BUTCH! We think the Trinidad Scorpion "Butch T", who previously won the hottest pepper Guinness Record in 2011 is every bit as hot at the Reaper!!
