Details

The Carolina Reaper is officially the World’s Hottest Pepper. The Bhut Jolokia (Ghost) held the World’s Hottest Pepper title for 4 years from 2007-2011. We crossed the Carolina Reaper with the Bhut Jolokia and this was the outcome!  This combo is one of the best tasting superhot peppers we've tried, and is great for fresh salsa, chutney, jerk sauces, and hot pepper jam! An experimental variety, it has not yet been stabilized. Non-Isolated.
