Carolina Reaper, the hottest chilli I cultivated so far!

I grow this year the fabled pretty new chili “The Carolina Reaper aka HP22B Pepper” I have 3 plants of this kind and now the fruits started to mature. The plants provide pretty with fruit but there are no amounts. One of the plants should I Hibernate the rest I give away or so, they end up in the compost.

I sent one of the fruits to Pierre so I would have an opinion on how it tastes and how he feels about the heat, the strength of this chili. See the video below to find out what he thinks about this Carolina Reaper aka HP22B.

PS. I have the seeds if you are eager to cultivate this hot chili.

    Once again, a really good blog!
    Now that the fall/winter approaching you may well spend a bit more text to Hibernate their chillis, for those who want to.
    Was thinking in particular of those of us who don't have greenhouses.
    Has 90% of my plants outdoors still, wonder when it comes time to take them. Lots of immature fruit still. Some are, of course, on the other blomnigen this year also. Has never been hibernating and have already read the earlier post. But a more in-depth post would be really appreciated!

    Which “strain” or strain, it is HP22B?

      Hi Tom!
      I got these from United States “Pepper Joe” in december 2012 and I do not know what strain of HP22B it is because it is not clear when buying seed.

    I have had my Carolina Reaper outdoors most of the summer. There have been lots of flowers and it has grown properly. But I haven't got any chili.. you have to have more than one to get fruit?
