We took a 2nd, 3rd, and a 5th place ribbon at this year’s Kentucky State Fair. Although we did not take home a blue ribbon, this was the first year we have competed in any produce competition. We are completely blown away by the success of our peppers.
Today, there is again much debate as to the origin of the Carolina Reaper. When that pepper first took the title hottest pepper in the world at Guinness World Records, the controversy began. There was much speculation that the Carolina Reaper was a renamed 7 Pot Primo pepper. Today, at least one major artisan hot sauce company has come out and said that the 7 Pot Primo is hands down the hottest pepper in the world. In fact, some are poking great fun at the Carolina Reaper.

Fresh Carolina Reapers are starting to come ripe faster and faster. I’ve added several to the online store. Until now, new batches were only available every few days. I think its about time they become steady. Click here to visit the Carolina Reaper product section.

Our Carolina Reaper peppers are starting to come ripe, but only a handful a day. So when available, we have been including them in our mixed flat rate boxes. Today, looking at the gardens I estimate we are about a week away from being able to fill flat rate boxes with twenty five or more peppers each. So I am making this first of the season full flat rate box available via Ebay.
