1798 - HOT PEPPER CAROLINA REAPER HY F1
The CAROLINA REAPER chili pepper is the hottest in the world, reaching an average spiciness of 1,570,000 Scoville units, with peaks of 2,200,000 units. It is red in color when ripe and has an end that resembles a scorpion's tail; it is the result of the cross between the Pakistani Naga Morich and the Red Habanero. It takes about 90 days to mature and reach a length of 3 to 5 cm. Despite its extreme spiciness, it offers a fruity and slightly sweet flavour, with hints of cinnamon and chocolate followed by a spiciness that develops in a few seconds and persists for a few minutes.
