The Hottest Pepper In The World now comes in yellow!

80 to 100 days. Open Pollinated. Carolina Reapers have held the Guinness Book of World Records record for the hottest pepper in the world since 2013. We sell lots of plants of the red Reapers, so were thrilled to find this new, yellow version. Just as hot, with 1,569,383 – 2,200,000 Scoville Units of heat. Please handle these with caution – they are lethal! Gorgeous, bright lemon yellow fruits are wrinkled and some have the famous stinger on the bottom. These make a beautiful yellow hot sauce. Like all Reapers, the plants start small and slow, but in a long, hot growing season eventually grow into a big bush that is loaded with fruits. In the north, grow them in your warmest spot.

Within 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the date to any other shipping week. Just respond to the e-mail and tell us when you want your plants. Our first shipping date is late March, weather permitting. We will not have plants available before then.

Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our plants are shipped in individual 3″ deep pots, and are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through May, according to your location or your request. We currently ship to every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
