Pepper Hot Carolina Reaper 10 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Carolina Reaper was certified as the world's hottest chili pepper by Guinness World Records on August 11, 2017 (it has fallen to 3 or 4 as of 2024). It's a serious scorcher! 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 harder to grow than most hot pepper seeds. It is very slow germinating and slow growing at first. Touching or whiffing, the fumes from the seeds. can cause burns on hands, face, and any other thing it touches, but it will clear those sinuses.
USE GLOVES, MASK AND SAFETY GOGGLES AT ALL TIMES WHEN WORKING WITH THESE. (I know there are those of you who are hard core and will not use these but you will wish you had. And don't rub your eyes.) Ripe peppers measure 1 to 1 and 1/2 inches wide.
This pepper takes 4 to 6 weeks to start to germinate and about 2 to 3 weeks for all to germinate. It is slow growing at first. When it reaches about 8 inches tall, it will start to grow a lot faster. But it will last several seasons as long as it does not freeze.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
SPECIAL GERMINATING HINT: We have found putting the seeds in a container with a piece of fine sandpaper and shaking will increase the germination rate and speed. In most cases.
