24+ fresh Seeds for Red Carolina Reaper Hot Peppers.
Carolina Reaper was certified as the world's hottest chili pepper by Guinness World Records on August 11, 2017. It's a serious scorcher! A MUST HAVE for those extreme pepper eaters. The pepper is red and gnarled, often with a bumpy texture and small, pointed scythe-shaped tail at the base of each fruit, hence the name 'reaper'. The heat rating on these devils is 1,641,183 Scovilles, according to The Guinness Book of World Records, in comparison the spicy habanero is a mere 100,000 Scovilles.
The Reaper is no harder to grow than any other pepper plant, but is very slow growing and needs to be kept warm the entire time. It needs an extremely long growing season and, in most cases, must be started inside (in a well-heated and lit area) well before planting out.
The plant takes 90-100 days to maturity. Also, germination can be very slow and take up to two weeks before you see a sprout. Use well-draining, light soil. Keep VERY WARM the entire time. These are HOT WEATHER PLANTS. Plant seeds shallowly with just a bit of soil dusted over them and then water evenly, careful not to wash seeds deeper when you water.
Touching the seed can cause burns on hands, face, and any other thing it touches. USE GLOVES AT ALL TIMES. Non-GMO, naturally grown, harvested, and dried.
