New Product!

World’s hottest pepper, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. A cross between a Ghost Pepper and a Red Habanero, this little demon has a sweet and fruity flavor, and then the heat kicks in — Carolina Reapers are about 4 times hotter than a habanero! Round pods have a cute little tail that belies what’s inside. Fire-engine red when ready to pick. One pepper will spice up dozens of dishes. Use to make hot sauce, salsa, mustard and pepper jelly, or in great moderation in a seasoning mix. This pepper requires careful handling with rubber gloves.
