Carolina Reaper is the world’s spiciest chili. The Scoville units can reach a blistering 2,200,000 million SHU.
Like most hot peppers, Carolina Reapers require full sun.
You will want to plant your Carolina Reapers in well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter.
Plant the seedlings approximately 4 feet away from neighboring plants.
Plants should be given at least 2 inches of water per week, but take care to avoid overwatering.
Carolina Reaper plants take roughly 90 days to get to the point of sexual maturity, which is when they will be ready to produce fruit.
When planted in the ground or a suitably large container, Carolina Reaper plants grow to be approximately 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide.
Peppers are 1 to 3 inches long and 1 to 3 inches wide.
The Carolina Reaper is a container-friendly plant; you will need a container with at least a 5-gallon capacity.
