As you may know the Carolina Reaper is the World’s Hottest pepper. Growing super hot peppers from seed can be quite difficult. That’s why we at PepperHead® have started shipping live plants across the nation with great success.
Our plants are carefully tended for, packaged, and shipped so our plants arrive safely and ready for your garden.
Detailed growing instructions are included with every order, but you can also read our Ultimate Guide to Growing Super Hot Peppers.
Why buy PepperHead® live pepper plants?
The roots of our Carolina Reaper plants are inoculated with Endomycorrhizal fungi* and beneficial bacteria** which produces a more drought and pest resistant adult plant. Also, more nutrients are available to the plant because of the mycorrhizae’s symbiotic relationship with the roots as well as reducing transplant shock. It is important to have this inoculation at germination so the plant is colonized for life. It is much more difficult or even impossible to inoculate after a juvenile stage. This will make our Reaper plants grow larger and produce more peppers than if purchased from anywhere else.
Below is a microscopic view of mycorrhizae attached to a root taken from a BBC News article.
Our Carolina Reaper plants are perfect for every setup: hydroponics, container growing, organic gardens, raised beds, or even the normal chemical fertilizer garden.
