About Hot Pepper Seeds - Carolina Reaper

Capsicum annuum

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed

At time of printing considered the spiciest pepper in the world, the Carolina Reaper packs a serious punch! A must-try for daring pepper enthusiasts, it's not for the faint-hearted. However, for those who shy away from this intense experience, these peppers still serve as a fun conversation piece to the garden. These devilish peppers warn with a fiery red hue and often feature a distinctive scythe-shaped tail at their base, hence the name "reaper." With heat ratings surpassing 1,500,000 Scovilles, these peppers make eating other hot peppers mere child's play.
