Carolina Reaper Pepper Seeds

Scoville Heat Units (SHU):
1,400,000 - 2,200,000

The Carolina Reaper is currently the hottest pepper in the world that can be grown by the general public, according to Guinness World Records. In November 2013, the Guinness Book of World Records named the Carolina Reaper as the new hottest pepper in the world, replacing the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion. The Carolina Reaper pepper averages 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU) and some peppers have been tested over 2,200,000 SHU, which is hotter than typical pepper spray. To put it in perspective, the Carolina Reaper is about 175 times hotter than the hottest Jalapeno.

The taste of the Carolina Reaper is described as fruity and sweet, but the intense heat level kicks in shortly after consumption. There’s a lot more flavor to the Carolina Reaper than most extremely hot peppers. The pepper was originally developed by Ed Currie, who crossed a Red Habanero with a Ghost pepper. Like Trinidad Scorpion varieties, the Carolina Reaper has a scorpion-like tail. The Carolina Reaper resembles the 7 Pot Primo pepper. The Carolina Reaper starts off green and ripens to red, reaching about 1.5 to 2 inches in total length.

The Carolina Reaper pepper was crossed with Jay’s Peach Ghost Scorpion pepper to create the California Reaper, which was originally developed by Steve Bender at Tyler Farms.

    Carolina Reapers BEWARE! : )

    Posted by Gerry on 26th Oct 2017

    OK Here's the deal, I got into this because I was looking for the ultimate hot pepper and somehow I stumbled across this site, got the Carolina Reaper seeds and the whole thing started!
    First, the seeds from Tyler Farms are TEN Star quality, I got I don't know how many... but I planted them ALL and they ALL caught! WHAT IN THE WORLD was I going to do with SO many plants! that is just one... then when they grow... THEY GROW! once you pass the 5inch height, move them to a pot with dirt, no more incubation pod, they went berserk! they caught so well that in no time flat they did the Y split! I cropped them (even though they were flowering and it hut to cut them) and they totally spread out! before I knew it... the plant was 6ft tall and producing the most insanely HOT and brightest color peppers EVER! and ALL whom I have given peppers have the same comment, THE HOTTEST THING EVER! those whom I gave the plants to... WOW! strong! beautiful plants and most colorful peppers! But please! one word of caution, do NOT give these peppers to any one who is not a truly pepper pro! these guys are NUCLEAR hot! and EXTREMELY good tasting! on a scale of 1 to 10 these rate a modest ELEVEN! "11" yes 11 blew the scale away!

    I just harvested the peppers that I grew from your seeds form last year. Believe it or not, the peppers will be featured in a beer brewed by one of the biggest brewers in Colorado!

    Buy With Confidence!

    After being the victim of a pepper seed scam (the seeds did not grow into what they were being advertised as), I found Tyler Farms. I've been ordering from them for several grow seeds and always find a new variety that I'm interested in growing. This past year I bought the Carolina Reaper seeds along with several others and continue to be impressed with the quality seeds at a reasonable price. I have several plants that have many pods, all of which have grown true to what they were advertised as.
