The Carolina Reaper currently holds the Guinness World Record for hottest pepper. At its most extreme, the Reaper is hotter than commercially-available pepper spray. This super-hot pepper is a hybridized cross of a red habañero strain and a Naja Viper. Last year's Carolina Reapers came with a few non-typical duds. This year we have re-selected seeds directly from the proper Carolina Reapers growing in our garden. Of course, as with all heirloom (open pollinated) varieties, Mother Nature can always skew the genes a bit toward something unexpected. But that's one of the things we like about her.
Caution: these can cause burns if handled without gloves--so be careful! Please, don't eat this pepper raw.
