Pepper 'Carolina Reaper'

This wrinkled red fire bomb with its distinctive tail was recently knocked off the hot pepper Iron Throne, but is still a mighty weapon to take into battle --or the bbq! Individual fruits have been measured at up over 2 million Scoville units (A Ghost pepper is a bit over 1 million, a jalapeno is about 5000.) These are actually a cross between a Ghost pepper and a red Habanero. It takes a long season to get fruit in our climate, so start early and grow them in black pots to heat up the soil.
