Now comes the fruit at Carolina Reaper AKA HP22B!

I have all my chiliplantor still indoors then I wait for the greenhouse should be ready for use. One of the varieties that I grow this year are the much vaunted Carolina Reaper AKA HP22B that Pepper Joe is sure that will take over the throne when it comes to the world's hottest chili pepper.

I have 3 St plants of this kind and I sprouted seed in February so there are no giant plator yet but all is fine and well being. Then I left some flowers to get any early fruit so now has one of the platorna had a small fruit. Will be interesting to follow its plants during the summer.

Do you have any Carolina Reaper AKA HP22B plant?

    How do you think this compares to fatali jigsaw?

      Hi Jonas!
      How Carolina Reaper AKA is in control in relation to Fatali Jigsaw I don't know as I haven't seen any of the information given on the strength of Fatali Jigsaw. I will send the fruits to Gustaf so he can test them by eating them and then talk about what he thinks about the taste and strength so we'll see who is the strongest in his.

    What a great blog you have, stuck at chilibloggen and read more posts. Thank for your post about plants that drop flowers. A problem I have on one of my plants. Fun with lot of knowledge gathered in a.

    I am a newbie but think it is both good and really fun to grow chili. Tested on the first time last year and goes into a bit more of it this year and document it for myself so it will be perhaps better for next year.

    Exciting with this strong kind! Have to ask if you use all the varieties you grow? What do you use in this case, these super strong chilisorter to?

    Warm regards

      Hi Anna!
      Glad you like my little page! Well then I use all my chilisorter even the really hot varieties. Most dryers I and grind to powder, which I then use in moderation to various spice mixtures to be used in cooking, BBQ and desserts like pannacotta, dark chocolate ice cream and various drinks, etc. Yes it is only your imagination that sets the limits . Much of chilisarna is also given away to acquaintances and friends who like hot chili.

        I dry my also, Smart to grind them. I'll try to do with a couple so I do not always chop the chilli when I want to use it in food 🙂

    I just read your blog and myself have put their own carolina reapers. But how often do you water the, and how much to irrigate every time?

    Thanks in advance

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      Hi! to ensure that they have even irrigation. I always water through the entire pot when I water. It is the hole in the bottom of my pots so excess water runs out of the.

    Hey Stig. I have a Carolina Reaper for two years but has never given either flowers or fruit. All my other chilis make it. You know what the problem might be? The plant is extremely nice and lush.

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      Hi! Curiously, it has not yielded any flowers? Can the flower buds? Are you 100 it's a Reaper. Will there be no flowers this year not so cut down replace ground and keep it evenly moist. PS. If you give too much N (Nitrogen) There will be plenty of lush plants, but at the expense of flower and fruit.

  5. Henry says:

    Yep, I'm sure. Took the seeds from a Carolina Reaper that we ate. There is not a shred of flower or fruit. As regards nitrogen may sue. We water with aquarium water from our 1000-litre tub and all other chilisar shout Hallelujah. Even the Naga Jolokian love the aquarium water, such. I'll cut down (Have done it all year because I thought that was the problem) and water without nutrients on the.

    If you do not have the Aquarium, can I otherwise recommend it for the sake of the industry.

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      Hi. Aquarium water can in many cases contain a high content of N in relation to nitrogen for PK and chilli would have hoped higher content of PK in relation to N
