    Carolina Reapers are finally bearing fruit!

    I was worried! The habañeros, cayennes, and Tabasco peppers have all been coming in nicely, but the Reapers seem to be about 2-3 weeks behind. But they look like they’ll be just fine… late, but fine!

    Where did you get the plants or seeds from? I’m curious cause most of what we think are Carolina Reapers are not authentic. Only seeds from PuckerbuttpepperCo. are legit.
    I grew them for a bunch of years and found this out after talking with Ed himself.
    Got them from various vendors and they never were as good or as plentiful as the original.
    Not to say they, and what you have, isn’t gonna be hot as hell. They will be for sure. But they may not be true Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reapers.

      Reapers are open pollinated and stable so as long as the blossoms were covered and no bee crossed them with another pepper its the same from on generation to the next. You can save seeds from reapers and grow reapers next season.

      Good point Michael Brinton My last couple of yields, not so good, may have been due to this.
      Won’t know since the Y put an end to my growing.

        Home Depot. I’m gonna say they are authentic. Maybe he made a deal.
