The ‘Carolina Reaper’ is was rightly voted the Worlds’ Hottest Chill by the Guinness Book of Records! Bred in South Carolina by crossing a Ghost chilli with a Habanero, this chilli pepper weighs in at an incredible 2.2 million Scoville. This devilish chilli pepper plant should be handled with extra care and is not for the faint-hearted!
Each devilishly hot chilli pepper has a fruity, cinnamon/chocolate taste before the mind-blowing heat kicks in. The bumpy, lumpy ‘Carolina Reaper’ won't all look the same as they grow, but the majority will have a pointed scorpion tail that is typical of this 'super-hot' chilli. Treat this plant with respect, pick your chillies once they turn red, and always wear gloves when handling fruit. Never touch your eyes without washing your hands… You have been warned!
Grow the of the World’s Hottest Chilli from your very own patio or greenhouse, a must-have for any chilli enthusiast.
Your chilli plant will perform best in a greenhouse but will produce a good crop in a sunny sheltered location outdoors. It is important that you give it time to adjust to its new environment. Check the compost is moist and if required leave the plant to soak in approximately 5mm water for 5-10 minutes or until the top of the compost is damp. Stand the plant in a warm, light, airy place such as a windowsill or conservatory and allow to grow, ensuring that the compost is kept moist.

Growing - Best grown in a greenhouse. This chilli needs the sunniest and hottest place you can give it as it needs a long growing period to produce fruit. Consider pollinating the flowers with a small paintbrush to make sure chillies are produced.
