Took a shot at a “Carolina Reaper” at Home Depot. Any idea what these are? I thought ghosts at first but they don’t seem long enough

Probably red habs. Seems to be the common theme. Great peppers tho.

eBay Reaper or Habanero

What is an eBay reaper?!

It's well known on this sub Home Depot's supplier did not give actual Carolina Reapers. I think they were actually red Savina habaneros

I bought a “Red Ghost Pepper” plant from my local Home Depot about a month ago. It’s starting to bloom now and I am interested to see if that’s actually what it is.

The reapers are from a different supplier to the ghosts so you should be fine.

Cool, thanks.

Thank you, I saw from other posts that Home Depot generally doesn’t get the correct peppers but for $3.99 I figured why not give it a shot.

Red Savina are insanely hot. In my opinion Home Depot shouldn't be selling Carolina Reapers. It's an idiot lawsuit waiting to happen.


cbk04

That is exactly what I thought. I hope they are red Savina, haven’t had one of those yet. I have a scotch bonnet and a regular old habanero already so a hotter variety would be welcome

They look similar to my red savina so it's possible. They burn real good.

I’ve got a mystery pot full of 6 pepper plants given to my by one of the parishioners in my church. I am gonna see what they are within 2 weeks. Excited!
