The Carolina Reaper, originally named the HP22B, is a cultivar of the Capsicum chinense plant. The pepper is red and gnarled, with a small pointed tail. In 2013, Guinness World Records dubbed it the hottest chili in the world, with an average SHU of around 1.5 million!, surpassing the previous record holder, the Trinidad Scorpion "Butch T"
Note: There is still speculation around the stability of this strain. Some people have reported very little heat, whilst others report blistering heat. We are currently growing a bush and will let you know!
(C. chinense with some C. frutescens genes)
Good question... Now how many other seed sellers do you know who actually grow and test their products? Not many at all. Most sellers simply buy in bulk and on-sell to you. How do you know what you are buying until it's months down the line and then too late!
We buy hermetically sealed parent stock from a reputable seller, then we grow the plants and harvest the fruits. Only after testing germination of these seeds do we then sell on to you. This very lengthy process unfortunately has its disadvantages if we lose plants due to pests or other factors (sometimes the Dog!!)
So buy from us and buy with confidence.
