Believed to be the hottest pepper in the world, the Carolina reaper is a serious scorcher! For those extreme pepper eaters, Carolina reaper is a must-- for those less adventurous, they make a great conversation piece in the garden. These devious little peppers are fiery red with a little scythe shaped tail at the base of each fruit, hence the name reaper. The heat rating on these monsters is 1,569,300 Scovilles, in comparison the spicy habanero is a mere 100,000 scovilles!

What are the pros? HOT

Review:

Carolina Reapers are amazingly hot. If intense heat is what you're after -- with a nice, unobtrusive flavor, besides, this is your pepper. This pepper is great for making hot sauce -- and for winning chili cookoffs. You can add LOADS of heat with this pepper without having much effect on the other flavors in your recipes. The downside is... it IS so hot that the uses for it are limited Most people can only tolerate so much heat -- and only so often. Another reviewer took issue with the 1.5M Scoville rating, but that IS the published average. (SOME peppers may top out at 2.2M Scoville units; likewise, some of them will end up under a million -- hence the AVG of "only" 1.5 million units.) If you want HOT, THIS is THE pepper to eat, but PLEASE, *NOT* WHOLE! In Zone 5, I start hot peppers indoors late Feb to early March w/ heat mat, good potting soil/peat/vermiculite mix, Miracle Gro. Plant out AFTER last frost. Balanced fert and epsom salts -> great productivity.

Review:

Out of all the 10 Varieties of peppers i grow nothing beats the Reaper. It's got the looks, the heat, the flavor and in my opinion it is one of the best varieties out there. I only got two plants going since i grow so many other peppers but my two plants are very bushy and at each node i get maybe 3 to 4 flowers and most of them set pods. It is a slow producer though and it makes sense because of the heat level. I've had these little tiny pods for about a week now and they are growing out slowly. I can see the tell tale stinger starting to grow out of them too. It is just a very exciting plant to watch grow. If you want these peppers to live up to the heat you have to fertilize while they are flowering. I use Organic Bone Meal and a Organic Vegetable fertilizer and give them a table spoon of epsom salt every month. Epsom Salt helps with the absorption of nutrients since it is basically Magnesium and Sulfur, too of the major components to help with a great heat level. Highly Recommend!!

Review:

I'm a little early writing this review. I'm only 2 months in, but out of the 20 pepper varieties that I'm currently growing, this one is definitely the best in all aspects. I got at least a 95% germination rate (which I seem to be getting from all of the varieties I'm growing). It could have even been 100%. If you keep the moisture level and the temps just right, these will come up just as fast as any other pepper. I'm not sure why so many people seem to think other wise. I wish I could post pictures. They look amazing. They seem to be more forgiving than other pepper plants too. Growing 20 varieties has been a challenge. They all seem to have different wants and needs, but these guys just keep thriving no matter what I do wrong. Not one single complaint..other than that I'm not sure if I'm even going to be able to eat the fruits of my labor..haha But they will be used to make a mean pepper sauce!
