120 days. 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 many fruit, hence the name reaper. The heat rating on these monsters can be over 1,500,000 Scovilles; in comparison the spicy habanero is a mere 100,000 Scovilles!

Review:

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.

hot a pepper as anyone needs
Easy to Grow 2.5
EarlyMaturity 1.5
 

What are the pros? Flavor, heat, sturdy plant

What are the cons? None in my opinion

Review:

Not only hot, not only really really really hot, but it sneaks up on you and delivers a solid slam of heat after the first blast is done! Very healthy, vigorous grower, resistant to pests. Start early on heat pads. It'll take a long time to harvest. If paint remover came in a pepper then this is the pepper. I love it! A little at a time though. One or two plants should be enough for anyone. I add it to foods sparingly. I tried it in jam and whew!

Review:

I purchased these from a different vendor last year and had no luck at all. So I purchased a packet from Baker Creek with limited expectations. I started six seeds, all of which sprouted. I then put three in the ground and three in buckets. Four have made it to maturity and produced some amazing looking peppers. One of the plants is well over four feet tall and all four have big, beautiful leaves. I would definitely recommend buying these from Baker Creek and not the 'specialty' pepper seed companies.

Great peppers super hot
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great heat

What are the cons? Slow starting / maturing

Review:

Had great germination rate with these, although it did take upwards of three weeks for them all of them to pop up even on the heat mat, several were up after a few days. I had 100% germination out of 6 seeds. Slow growing, I wish I had started them sooner, but to be expected with super hot peppers in general. However they are doing fantastic now and the heat level is no joke. Will be trying to over-winter a couple and will be planting again next year for sure!

Review:

Hotter than Hades. I can eat one with a sandwich, but not solo. WARNING: if you decide to dehydrate them, do it in a well ventilated area and certainly not in the house.The vapor from the fumes of the dehydrator are almost toxic. If you breathe the fumes you will be coughing and sneezing like crazy. Wild experience!!
