The Carolina Reaper X Jay’s Peach Ghost Scorpion is a hybrid of two very hot chillis. The Carolina Reaper that currently holds the title of the World’s Hottest Chilli and the Jay’s Ghost Scorpion that is not as hot on paper, but dishes out one of the most painful burns that a chilli can dish out. This variety is not stable and mutations/variations must be expected. Plants are typically Chinense with an expectant height of around 100cm. Pods are very unusual looking with a general Bhutlah kind of shape and a tail at the end and pods that are much more bumpy and have much longer tails than the pod shave been seen. Pods generally ripen from from a green to peachy colour and somewhere between peach and orange when fully ripened, are thin skinned and have a fair amount of placenta inside. The aroma is sweet, fruity and slightly floral. Flavour is bitter up front and sweet and fruity there after with a little of that Naga floral flavour. These pods are superhot! Heat on these is way up there, the burn on these is very severe with front of mouth and back of throat burn second to none.
