The red Carolina Reaper is the king of hot chillies. This bomb of flavour will detach your tongue from your mouth and make you sweat with a spicy feeling right into your nostrils and ears.

These red wrinkled pods with a pointed tip can grow up to 7 centimetres long. They have a medium thick flesh and turn from green to red when they mature. Although they have a sweet and fruity taste, they truly pack a huge punch of intense heat.

Carolina reapers managed to top the charts on the Guinness world records in 2013.

Heat Factor: Carolina Reaper rates at 2 200 000 on Scoville Heat units.

Chilli peppers grow best in hot climates and won’t tolerate frost and they enjoy full sun. The ideal growing temperatures are between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius.
