Designation: Hot Pepper 22B NH7
Proper Name: Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper Red
Other Names: N/A
Type: Capsicum Chinense/Frutescens (AKA “Assamicum”)

Scoville Heat Units: 1.4 Million – 2.2 Million SHU (1.64 Million Average)
Sauce Strength Rating*: Record – 10/11
Colour: Slightly Pinkish Red
Ripe Flavour: Gentle, mellowed out red chilli with lightly spiced hints. I find that a bitter or sour element tends to acompany this pepper’s heat but it appears to be genetic. Those who don’t experience it tend to find the reaper quite sweet.
Green Flavour: Foral, grassy, somewhat bitter, not the best.
