This is an award winning strain of the original red Carolina Reaper pepper. All strains are not the same. When the Carolina Reaper was originally made available as seed stock, many claimed it was an unstable new pepper. Reports of the seed stock producing ghost and habanero looking pods were common. Today the reports continue, but now it seems more likely they are due to bad isolation practices and the resulting cross pollination.
Nobody can produce perfect seeds. Insects and cross pollinators just seem smarter than the best human efforts to keep them out. But we do take great steps to isolate desired dna threw constant culling and growing in the best isolation we can think of. The results are starting to show as our Carolina Reapers and other pepper variety are starting to bring home ribbons. We sell the same seed we use for our own award winning pepper farm.
Twenty (20+) or more organic Carolina Reaper seeds from our homestead gardens. Shop around and you will learn when it comes to seeds our motto is “Twice as many for half as much”.

About the Carolina Reaper Pepper
The Carolina Reaper (aka HP22B & HP22BNH) was declared the hottest pepper in the world by Guinness World Records on August 7, 2013. It was initially created by Ed Currie, owner of the Puckerbutt Pepper Company ©
Under all that heat is a sweet, fruity flavor with a hint of cinnamon, chocolate, and a wee bit of an earthy smoke flavor. Removing the seeds and plecenta helps cooks and chefs to bring these flavors out from behind all that heat. The Carolina Reaper pepper has become one of our favorites for hot pepper jams.
