Carolina Reaper HOT Pepper

I know at least a couple of us here on ICmag are growing the Carolina Reaper hot pepper, so thought I would make a thread for us all to share our experiences and pics of the plants/peppers.
I myself was gifted a very small seedling back in june and it's been transplanted into a large pot and has established now... it's about 8 inches tall, LOTS of nodes, no flowers yet....

Cool, (well not really, haha)................what zone are you in out of curiosity? Do you still think there is enough season left to get fruit? I may try them next year if I can find seeds.

Fellow Reaper grower here and I got my seeds direct from Ed Currie. I've found other capsaicin varieties rather easy to grow - the Reaper took a bit more effort and patience. The seeds took 2 months to germinante - and were quite slow to grow...but the patience has paid off. I expect I'll see fruit on oldest one this season.

I've got several growing at different ages - so I'll just share my biggest / most mature one which is in a 3 gallon planter.

7/22 - plant was about 4 inches tall and just starting to show secondary growth tips.




9/9 - plant is about 22" tall from the top of the soil - but looks like it will be very productive.




And of course - these plants like anything I grow are in a fully amended organic soil...being given nothing but water.

Really excited to try the world's hottest peppers!!! Look forward to seeing others share theirs.

Thanks for starting this Avi!

@MoneyMike - Carolina Reaper is a worked cross between Pakistani Dorset Naga and a Carribean Red Habanero from what I understand - made in South Carolina by Ed Currie. Was officially crowned world's hottest last November. Check out PuckerButt Pepper Company for seeds.

I ordered mine almost a year ago... germinated a bunch and gave em away.... a few round June I reckon... LOL

I've gotten 6 day germs... I've gotten 60 day germs... they can be a fickle bunch.

I kept one indoor, but I still have 2 more seed packs....
humidity and heat are helpful, but if you want a more rapid germ, freeze the seeds for 2 days before planting... trust me on this.
At least refrigerate em a few days if yer scared of the freezer.

The Carolina Reaper is a hybrid cultivar of chili pepper of the Capsicum chinense species, originally named the "HP22B", bred by cultivator Ed Currie, who runs PuckerButt Pepper Company in Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States. It's the world's hottest hybrid pepper.
The original cross was a red naga pepper and a red savina pepper. The "Carolina Reaper" was rated as the world's hottest chili pepper by Guinness World Records according to 2012 tests, averaging 1,569,300 on the Scoville scale with peak levels of over 2,200,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).
The previous record-holder was the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T.
