- Ages 8+
The Carolina Reaper is a cultivar of the Capsicum Chinese plant. Developed by American breeder Ed Currie, the crossbreed is between a "really nastily hot" La Soufriere pepper from Saint Vincent and a Naga Viper pepper from Pakistan, it was named "Reaper" due to the shape of its tail. It has been described as having a fruity taste, with the initial bite being sweet and then immediately turning to "molten lava.
It was certified as the world's hottest chili pepper by Guinness World Records on August 11, 2017. The official Guinness World Record heat level was 2,192,431 Scoville Heat Units (SHU)
For growing, the pepper has been described as a good all-rounder to try at home, they require temperatures of at least 18–20 °C and suggested growing in 30–40 cm pots to restrict growth and produce fruit sooner. When fully ripe, two peppers occupy the palm of the hand.
