Carolina Reaper seeds are known for producing the world’s hottest pepper, with Scoville heat units (SHU) measured at over 2 million.

These seeds are perfect for the spicy food enthusiast looking to add some heat to their garden.

Germination: To start growing Carolina Reaper peppers from seed, it is best to begin the process indoors.

Fill seed trays or pots with seed compost and water it well.

Sow the seeds on the surface, covering them with a thin layer of compost or vermiculite.

Place the tray or pots in a propagator or cover with a plastic bag and put them in a warm place, such as a windowsill or heated propagator.

Keep the compost moist but not waterlogged.

Germination usually takes 7-14 days at a temperature of around 75-85°F

Growing tips: Once the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into 3in pots.

Grow them on in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill until all risk of frost has passed.

When planting them out, choose a sunny, sheltered spot in well-drained soil.

Space the plants 36in apart, in a hole large enough to accommodate the rootball. Water the plants in well and keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged.

It’s recommended to use Mulch around the base of the plants, to help preserve moisture in the soil.

Fertilize regularly with a organic, water-soluble fertilizer to promote healthy growth.

As Carolina Reaper plant is a tall plant, you may need to stake them to keep them upright.

Also, be aware that the peppers are extremely hot, so be sure to handle them with care, and wearing gloves is advisable.

You can expect to harvest the peppers in around 120-150 days after transplanting.
