This new strain of Carolina Reaper is a beautiful chocolate color and tastes nothing like chocolate. It is more like a floral diesel cough drop that starts your mouth on fire. As a Reaper, this is one of the hottest peppers in the world so use gloves when handling it and before eating it.

Heat Level: Painful    Scoville Heat Units: 1,500,000 

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

~ Packet contains 10 seeds.

 

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. 


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

100% germination rate

Purchased 10 seeds, received 12, and 12 germinated. Definitely a good start.

I planted 25 days ago and all of them are doing fine - they're not growing crazy fast, but they're not stalling out either.

Avg days to sprout: 9.6
First sprout day: 8
Last sprout day: 15

Growing media: Miracle Gro seed starting mix.
Growing temp: 81-84 (thermometer in dirt).
Fertilizer: Miracle Gro at seedling strength, after first true leaves emerged.

WICKED!

Love the color and the heat of these Chocolate Reapers. I started them early in January to get a nice sized plant to transplant outside in late May, since we have a somewhat shorter growing season here.
