Carolina Reaper is the current record holder for being the HOTTEST PEPPER in the world. It is one of the hottest peppers you can find - when you eat it your ears will pop, your body will tingle and everything will feel numb! Warning: Intense endorphin rush ahead! Maximum heat reported at over 2,200,000 Scoville Heat Units The Carolina Reaper is an absolutely amazing pepper. 

The pods are 2-1/2" wide and 2-1/2" long with stinger and bright red rough skin. Flavor is fruity, sweet, and has a hint of old dust and smokey undertones, but you won't taste that! Plants grow to 5' tall and 4' wide. Capsicum chinense (90 days)

~ Packet contains 10 seeds.

(There is a small chance that on the outside of your seed packet it may say 8 seeds instead of 10 seeds. Please open the packet to see the 10 seeds inside. We are using these older packets instead of wasting resources by throwing them away. Thanks.)


Because of limited supply, and that this is the best deal on Carolina Reaper seeds you're likely to find on the internet, we limit each sale to 2 seed packets per customer. 


Warning: Handling this pepper requires extreme caution. Wear hand, eye and breathing protection. 

Heat Level: Stupid Hot
Scoville Heat Units: 1,500,000 - 2,000,000

Capsicum chinense strains require a great deal of attention during the germination process. Moisture and a constant and consistent heat range must be maintained. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into containers.

World's Hottest Pepper for now...
In 2013, the Carolina Reaper beat the Trinidad Scorpion "Butch T" pepper, to claim the record for being the World's Hottest Pepper.  However, in 2017, two new contenders including the Dragon's Breath Pepper and Pepper X claimed to be hotter than 2.2 million Scoville units, though the heat of these peppers has not yet been officially proven nor have they received the official Guinness Record, so time will tell - learn more about these peppers here.
