Caroline Reaper Chilli
New Guinness World Record since 20th of November 2014.
Originally from USA.
The heat level of this chilli is mega hot.
This chilli goes great sparingly in any dish that needs the heat! The chilli pods go from green to red over time. The chilli pod looks quite similar to the Scorpion but the flesh is very wrinkled and the inside of the pod is very oily so be carefull when handling those fruits. When fully grown the Caroline Reaper plant can grow up to 90 – 120 cm high and you should be able to get a lot of fresh fruit during the chilli season which lasts approximate 4 to 6 months.
