Carolina Reaper

Would you try the world’s hottest pepper?

A man in South Carolina has won the title of growing the world’s hottest pepper, according to Guinness World Records. His ‘Carolina Reaper’ peppers have a stem resembling the tail of a scorpion and a heat factor that’s about the same as pepper spray. Would you try one?

  2. Have been growing the super hots for some time. This year, started growing the Carolina Reaper. I find it to be comparable to the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion except that it seems to have a longer season.
