Consuming a chilli pepper as hot as the Carolina Reaper can be a disorienting experience — one may experience a sensation similar to sticking their tongue in a deep-fryer, with heat radiating painfully to the ears. In some cases, this extreme heat has been known to cause hallucinations. One should take caution as the Carolina Reaper can cause lasting numbness of the taste buds along with severe stomach cramps if not enough food is consumed simultaneously.
The Carolina Reaper HP22B was given the Guinness World Record due to its remarkable spiciness, reaching a Scoville Heat Unit of 1.5 million, thus firmly establishing its status as the World's Hottest Pepper. This pepper is a hybrid of the Habanero and Naga Viper peppers, both of the Capsicum chinense family.
The Carolina Reaper plant has been known to reach heights of over one meter when grown in a container, potentially reaching even greater heights if planted directly in the ground. Its pods, developed through hybridisation, will usually be around 3-4 cm in width and length and transition from light green to a vivid red hue, rounded off with a signature pointed tail.
This chilli pepper has a painfully high level of heat, making it ideal for those looking to make a particularly intense chilli sauce or powder. It should be handled with caution, as its heat level could easily overwhelm the flavours of the dish.
Use two pairs of gloves when you chop hot pepper and be careful not to get any chilli in your eyes.

Also known as HP22B
Begin growing in a heated environment, providing plentiful moisture and consistent warmth. Ensure eye protection and gloves are worn when handling the fruit or seeds and operate in a well-ventilated area. As plants mature, they can grow up to 1.5m in height, so adequate space is essential. Germination may also take considerable time.

Beautifully box of biennial seeds. I haven’t sown them yet but I’m looking forward to doing so. Delivered promptly and the packaging is all recyclable and so prettily presented with two cute strawflowers inside. Thank you
Ordered a couple of chilli varieties that I hadn’t found anywhere else. They arrived within just a couple of days (I’m in Kent) and included an extra package of seeds as a “thank you” which I thought was such a lovely touch, thank you! Very excited to get growing 😊
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

Top quality seeds and so beautifully presented - I bought them for myself but it was like receiving a gorgeous gift!

I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
