Carolina Reaper was the world record holder for being the HOTTEST PEPPER in the world from from 2013 to 2023, before it was surpassed by Pepper X, which was also developed by Ed Currie. Pepper X seeds are patented and are not available for sale, so grow the next hottest pepper: the Carolina Reaper! It is one of the hottest peppers you can find, and the hottest pepper you can grow. 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 a stinger and bright red rough skin. The flavor is fruity, and sweet, with 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)

 

*Soak seeds overnight in water before planting.

Germination Tip: Start indoors 8 weeks before transplant date, sow 1/4” deep. Keep soil moist, with bright light & bottom heat at 80-85 degrees F. Germination: 14-21 days. 

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

~ Packet contains 10 seeds.

Limited to two packs per customer

ALL Capsicum chinense strains require a great deal of attention during the germination process. Moisture and a constant and consistent heat range must be maintained for all varieties. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, and a bright grow light above them, and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 14-28 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. 


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Carolina Reapers

We planted our seeds in seed trays with grow lights and heat mats. The reapers germinated over the course of 2-3 weeks after planting. We got 100% germination. The plants started slowing but have come on pretty strong. The photo shows the plants as they are six weeks after planting. We're happy with them so far and are looking forward to a good harvest.

Badass Pepper Seeds!

I ordered, Habanada, Carolina Reaper, and Hatch Peppers 🌶️, I had 95% germination rate, but it was partially my fault because I had some stem rot. You want good peppers…Sandia 💯

Best deal on these seeds!

You have the best price around, and the seeds are very viable - I had almost every one sprout last spring, so I had to share some seedlings with my community garden friends. These are great for drying and putting in small doses into salsas or stews, I love their fruity flavor, but not in large doses. Just ordered some more seeds for this year! I may not plant all the seeds this time so I don't have extras... on the other hand it's nice to give some seedlings away, too!

Reaping the rewards

The last two years i purchased these seeds. I absolutely love them, my wife not so much (she doesnt like super hot)! They grew fast and surpassed my expectations every year so far. I brought the largest one inside to ride out the cold this year. Im excited to see just how well it will do in spring and coming growing season. I always harvest a good amount of peppers off these plants. These are by far the best reaper seeds on the market!!!
