For some time there was a rumor that the Carolina Reaper could be the new hottest chili in the world. Among chili lovers this gave rise to discussions and assumptions. After a media offensive by producer Ed Currie the chili entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 2013 as the hottest pepper in the world .

The Carolina Reaper is a cross between a Pakistani Butnaga and a Naga Habanero Red type from St. Vincent, an island in the Caribbean and has a fruity flavor . Due to the extreme heat, caution is recommended when handling these peppers (gloves recommended). The best germination is achieved at a constant temperature of between 28 and 32 degrees.
