As a chilli head myself I know how frustrating it is to waste a whole chilli growing season on seeds that don't produce the plants you were expecting.

The heat of the Reaper is really brutal and the burn was like nothing I have experienced before from a fresh chilli. The heat takes over your whole mouth, attacks your tongue like nothing else can. The heat gets hotter and hotter as you swallow you feel like you're going to die. If you close your eyes you can sense the chilli has a lovely sweetness, then the pain comes back and hits even harder.

As part of the Re-Sellers legal agreement with Ed Currie Re-Sellers can only supply the seeds to customers on the understanding that they only grow these peppers for their own use.

What The PuckerButt Pepper Company Says

“This is the World Record Hottest Chilli, Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper® pepper, formerly known as HP22B, (Higher Power, pot 22, plant B.) It is beautiful with a bright red rough surface and a long stinger. But don’t let looks fool you! This pepper got its name for a reason. If you are stupid enough to eat this pepper whole, you may wish to enter the doors of death willingly. Be very, very careful using this pepper. Those who don’t fear the Reaper are fools.

WARNING and we’re not kidding!

After touching or handling hot peppers always remember to wash your hands with a product containing acidity such as lime or lemon juice. Some of our peppers are smokin’ hot and if not properly handled will temporarily damage skin tissue. When sharing your hot peppers with others, please let them know to use with caution.

Enjoy,” Smokin’ Ed  President and Founder

“Carolina Reaper” the world’s hottest pepper Source: Charlotte

Rock Hill’s Ed Currie should soon know whether his “Carolina Reaper” is the world’s hottest production pepper.

Lab reports and other data will soon be on their way to the Guinness Book of World Records.

smokin ed in daily mail apThe Chile Pepper Institute at the University of New Mexico State recently proclaimed the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion as the world’s hottest pepper with a Scoville heat rating of 1.2 million

Currie’s “Carolina Reaper,” in lab tests at Winthrop University, has, on average, hit 1.474 million on the Scoville scale, Currie said.

“These are weapon quality peppers,” Currie said.

Currie, a Charlotte banker who started growing peppers as a hobby, admits there may be an occasional pepper or two that’s hotter than his “Carolina Reaper.” But he has tested the “Carolina Reaper” for more than five years and has been getting consistent results.

The testing has been done on small batches of the pepper which are grown in hot houses and fields in York County. The peppers are ground and mixed together to get an average reading, he said.

Currie estimated he has tested more than 50 pounds of the peppers which were originally were called HP22B for Higher Power, pot 22, plant B.

Under the PuckerButt Pepper brand Currie sells a variety of hot sauces and seeds. He recently opened a store on Main Street in Fort Mill, but does most of his business via the Internet.

He also recently hired an organic co-packer to make his sauces. The co-packer get pepper mash from Currie and follow Currie’s recipes to make sauces such as Voodoo Prince Death Mambo, Patrick Morgan’s KaBoom and Edible Lava.

“What started as a hobby is now a business,” he said.

Currie said he has asked Guinness to expedite his world-record request. He said he has paid the firm about $4,000 to seek the record.

Interest in buying the “Carolina Reaper” seeds has skyrocketed since the Guinness record attempt was announced.

Currie advised those who purchase the “Carolina Reaper” seeds that the pepper should “only be used in cooking and used sparsely.”

He said he’s been eating the peppers since he first grew the variety eight years ago and “their still hot.”
