What are the pros? Good germination, great plant
What are the cons? None
I started these early on Christmas Day since super hots are slow growers. Had fast germination in about 6 days in soil, trays, mini greenhouse with heat pad. They are going outside in a week and already have flowers ready to produce Reapers!

What are the pros? HOT HOT HOT
What are the cons? germination was long
I started these last year in the beginning of March under a HID light along with some Ghost peppers from here also. They took forever to germinate but I got around a 90% germination rate and put them outside in the garden a little early before the soil was warm and that slowed them quite a bit, I also had deer eat the tops off them all. they started to set fruit about the end of July and then the deer left them alone( I did find one half eaten reaper and would have loved to seen the reaction of the deer) all in all I ended up with a large pizza box full of reapers and 2 full of ghost peppers (I dry my peppers in these boxes and it works great because they are not stacked on each other and don't mold) I thought these were easy to grow but you need patience.

What are the pros? Germinate easy, great flavor
What are the cons? Slow maturity
One of the hottest, best tasting peppers I've tried. Very slow maturity! Its best to start germinating in December on a heat tray and keep indoors under a grow lamp until spring.
What are the pros? Prolific, super hot
What are the cons? Takes time
These peppers ARE growable for the average gardener. Of coarse, they do take a very long growing season to get mature, red peppers. Start indoors on a heat mat (85-90 degrees) to get that needed jump start. They take a while to germinate, so be patient! I soak my seeds in 1% potassium nitrate solution for 12 hours and that seems to speed things up in the germination department . Once they get established, they will take off! Remember to use fertilizer.

What are the pros? Super productive.
What are the cons? SLOOOWWWWWWW TOOO GROOOWWWW
This pepper is the baddest member of our 'Gang of 9'.
They take anywhere from 6 to 13 days to germinate in a bag with a damp paper towel in a warm place.
They also take FOREVER to ripen.
That being said, if you treat your bush right (lots of water, lots of compost, lots of sun, they will grow HUGE. My plants ended up being nearly 5 feet tall.
The amount of pods was incredible, but they do take quite a while to turn red. The fall prevented a good amount of peppers to not ripen. Easily harvested 3 lbs per plant. About 1% did not produce any pods and there were some odd looking phenotypes expressed on a couple bushes.
In my opinion, the Reaper is not the most stable of genetics, you will get some variations of shape and production, but all in all, great pepper if you have the time.
