The Carolina Reaper has been measured at over 2 million scoville units and is the hottest chilli we currently grow. This chilli was given the 'hottest in the world' title in August, 2013 and was bred by the PuckerButt company in South Carolina, USA. Incredibly, the record for eating three of these fruits is just over 12 seconds!

Heat level: 1,800,000 to 2,200,000 SHUs. Learn about Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) here.

Harvest: Starts fruiting about 120 days from potting on as seedlings and under good growing conditions. Pick when the fruits have reached their maximum size. Fruits ripen from green to red.

Size: Plants can grow quite tall about 1m and will require support. 

Capsicum chinense

Just WOW!

Purchased one plant earlier this year and have just harvested a lovely crop of peppers from this.
I was curious to see what all the fuss was about with the Reaper and it certainly does not disappoint! I like hot dishes but I have NEVER tasted anything on this scale before.
Tried them raw, only a tiny sliver as I was a bit wary, and it almost blew my head off! Lovely earthy taste initially turned into a full on conflagration in my mouth and I was left tasting spice for hours after.
I made the mistake of using the chopping board I use for cheese and two weeks on, after a number of washes, my cheese is still coming away with a strong, but very pleasant, chilli hit.
I have chopped and dried the remainder and look forward to incorporating them into different dishes to "surprise" my family.
Next is to see if I can manage to overwinter my plant for another crop next year.
Excellent service, excellent product, and mind blowing heat!
