Carolina Reaper Hot Pepper

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 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!

Review:

My daughter planted one plant this spring. This plant grew like it was on steroids, producing well over 150 peppers despite no supplemental water, only fertilized it once and it was overwhelmed by weeds late in the season. We dehydrated them after hearing that it will curb the heat. Going to be brave and try them as pepper flakes.......wish me luck!

Review:

This was my first year ever growing peppers and it was a success. I didn't plant my seeds until May or June, but they are growing peppers and still flowering. You have to give this plant some good fertilizer to make it grow big. I recommend a 5 gal bucket. The ones I grew in smaller pots stayed small, but the ones i placed in big containers grew like a weed.

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.
