Carolina Reaper is the hottest pepper in the world and you can now grow it in your kitchen. Follow us for more information.
I am a big fan of homemade hot pepper sauce. Usually I was doing it with the regular hot peppers that I was able to find back home. After a trip in USA, I got in contact with the hottest sauce of Buffalo Wild Wings. When I ordered I thought how hot can it be. I was also thinking that they will put the sauce in a tray and if I can’t take it I will just try something else. I ordered the big menu of wings with the Blazing sauce. The guy serving us, asked like three times if we are sure about this. This was the first question mark I had. Then here comes the wings with the sauce all over them so my plan that I will dip the wing in the sauce was gone. I was eating and crying. Never cried before from eating something hot :). The person serving us was just laughing and delivering to our table fresh water, glass after glass.
In the end I bought some bottles of their Blazing sauce take home and I saw on the bottle that they use Carolina Reaper for this. This is how I was introduced to this pepper and how I started to make plans for growing it.
I have to tell you…it’s my second trial in growing this pepper by my own. I tried also last year, but with all the move in a new country, I had to leave the plants in my old place. I saw in photos that they had some small peppers and going in a trip back home I tried one and it was not as hot as expected. Something had gone wrong in the growing process I assume.
This year I decided to try again. Hopefully it will work.
I bought a pack of seeds from Amazon and some Cocos substrate for a boost in growing up. The cocos substrate that I choose comes in the form of round tablets. Just put it in a small special cup for planting and by adding water in just 1 minute it will absorb it and inflate becoming 4 times bigger in height.
Just add the seed , water again and put it in a sunny place. Hopefully something will come out and I will be able this year to make my own hot Harissa using the Carolina Reaper.
I will update this post as the plants will grow up, so check again to see how they are doing.
