Our Carolina Reaper peppers are coming in hot and heavy (pun intended). Per the Guinness Book of World Records, this is the ‘Hottest Pepper in the World’. It is an extremely late season pepper, but when it starts to produce it really starts to produce. That is what is happening, we have a sea of red in our reaper gardens.
What do you tell a friend when she tells you she is going to pack up everything she owns and move to the Caribbean? Send me some pepper seeds. OK, I didn’t tell her that in response to her decision to move. I think I gave her more practical advice like: Are you frigging nuts? Its not that I have anything against the Caribbean. Other than the heat, I think it would be a beautiful place to live. Like plants, roots give a person stability. At this age, I would be far too insecure to give up my roots and make such a leap of faith.
