Reaperuga Chili Pepper (Capsicum chinense)
Reaperuga (Capsicum chinense): from the producer of the famous Carolina Reaper, Smokin 'Ed from the Puckerbutt Company. This rare spectacular cultivar definetly holds the quality guaranteed of the great company it carries behind. A spectacular cross between Carolina Reaper and Moruga; it displays large, wrinkled chilis of intense, penetrating aroma, prelude to a spiciness of still unknown value. There is no official measure yet, but it is certainly amongst the hottest in the world, considering that it comes from the same creators of the current Guinness World record holder. The plant is very productive and ornamental, the chillies are one of the largest of the Chinense species and stand out like small flames, a real view. It doesn't tolerate low temperatures so it is advisable to let it overwinter to anticipate production in the second year. This is definetely one of the rarest of the super spicy variety, for the bravest ones.
