Purchase these Carolina Reaper pepper seeds if you’re interested in growing the world’s hottest pepper. The Scoville rating for these pods is said to be over 2,000,000 SHU. The Carolina Reaper produces a devilish looking pod that even has a sinister looking stinger at the bottom. The heat from the Carolina Reaper is no joke and not for those without an extremely high tolerance for heat. You’ve been warned, wear gloves when cutting these pods open. The plants can easily grow to 48″ tall. They are very study, rarely requiring additional staking, and a good producer once mature. The pods will ripen from green to red. Allow the peppers to completely turn their deep red color before harvesting for the most heat and best flavor. Do wait, pick up these Carolina Reaper pepper seeds today! If super-hot peppers are what you desire then be sure and check out our Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper seeds.
Unless you live in a climate that is warm year-round, starting pepper seeds indoors is recommended. Plant at a depth of 1/4″ in sterile, moist seed starting mix. Place the sown seeds in a warm area, over 75F, for the best germination rate. The use of a humidity dome over the sown seeds will ensure they don’t dry out before germination occurs. Once the seedlings break the surface of the soil be sure to provide a bright source of light to ensure they don’t stretch and become “leggy”. Light coming in a window is rarely sufficient for proper growth. Even a south facing window is usually not enough. Providing light from a fluorescent or LED fixture over the top of your sprouts will ensure proper growth. If you’re new to growing peppers from seed we recommend you take a look at our guide on starting pepper plants indoors.
