Here are the details on the Carolina Reaper Pepper:
"The NEW Worlds Hottest Champ as of the 8/27/12 Press Releases. It averaged 1,474,000 SCU"
Ed has conducted a 4 year testing period at the Winthrop University in SC to validate the scorching heat level. The HP22B is now a standardized and stable variety of Chile pepper being in it's 8th year of growing by Ed. WELCOME Carolina Reaper to the Worlds Champions and now the reigning King.
One look at the Carolina Reapers Pod shape and you just know you have to have it. Because of the heat? No, because of the taste and flavor. Do we need a new Worlds Hottest? I think so. We have the Superbowl, World Series, Grammy and Oscar awards for new champs every year. The awesome thing is each one has a unique taste, nutritional profile, pod shape and plant growth. They are all different. The flavor of the HP22B is delightful. The Fruity and sweet/hot aroma hits you as soon as you cut it open. Then there is a hint of citrus and some say cinnamon. It is one delicious pepper. Relatively EZ to grow too.
There was a ton of time, effort and expense that went into the development of the Carolina Reaper. The great thing with this pepper is that a little goes a long way. a quarter pod will heat a pot of Chili or Spaghetti Sauce. A few dozen from one plant can last a year. Dry and freeze your HP22B's to enjoy for a long time.
