Description

Carolina Reaper seeds. The Carolina Reaper (formerly known as HP22B) is still the official Hottest Chilli in the World. It delivers an average of 1,641,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), a new figure now confirmed by Guinness World Records. It has said to peak at an incredible 2.2 million SHUs.

It was developed by Ed Currie in the U.S. – originally it was a hybrid between a Habanero and Naga Viper, both of the Capsicum Chinense family.

The Carolina Reaper is described as having a fruity, sweet taste with a hint of cinnamon and chocolate undertones. At least, for about a second, until the heat kicks in and melts your face off!.

Our climate here in Perth isn’t ideal for them, as they need a long growing season. They often don’t start producing pods until well into February/March – however, they are worth the wait! They can also take a long time to germinate, and need precise temperature and moisture control, so please be patient.

The pods have an evil, gnarly appearance, and a good percentage should have the trademark stinger tail – however, we find the pod shapes vary dramatically, even on a single plant.
