Carolina Reaper Powder from the spiciest pepper in the world!
Yellow Carolina Reaper peppers are a variety of the Carolina Reaper, which is known for being one of the hottest chili peppers in the world. The yellow variation of the Carolina Reaper shares the same extreme heat and unique fruity flavor profile as its red counterpart, but it comes in a vibrant yellow color instead of the traditional red.
Here are some key characteristics of Yellow Carolina Reaper peppers:
Appearance: The peppers are typically medium to large in size and have a distinctive bumpy, wrinkled, and slightly pointed shape. They may resemble the red Carolina Reaper in appearance but with a bright yellow color.
Heat level: Like the red Carolina Reaper, the yellow variety is extremely hot. On the Scoville scale, which measures the spiciness of chili peppers, the Carolina Reaper can exceed 1.6 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU) or even higher. This intense heat is significantly hotter than most commonly known chili peppers like jalapeños or habaneros.
Flavor: Despite their fiery nature, Yellow Carolina Reaper peppers are not just about the heat. They also offer a distinct fruity and sweet flavor, which adds complexity to their spiciness. The combination of extreme heat and fruity taste makes them a sought-after ingredient for chili enthusiasts and culinary daredevils.
Culinary use: Yellow Carolina Reaper peppers are mainly used as a seasoning or a way to add heat and flavor to various dishes. They are popularly used in sauces, salsas, marinades, and spice blends. Because of their extreme spiciness, it's essential to use them sparingly and with caution to avoid overpowering the dish.
Growing conditions: Carolina Reaper peppers, including the yellow variation, require warm and sunny climates to thrive. They are typically grown in regions with long, hot summers to achieve their maximum heat potential.
Due to their intense spiciness, Yellow Carolina Reaper peppers are not recommended for those with a low tolerance for heat. When handling these peppers, it's crucial to wear gloves and avoid touching your face, as the oils from the peppers can cause skin irritation and discomfort.
Overall, Yellow Carolina Reaper peppers are a highly prized chili variety for those seeking an adrenaline-pumping, fiery culinary experience with a touch of fruity sweetness.
Growing Season: Late February - Late November.
Nutritional Value: Chile peppers contain a high amount of vitamin C. Almost twice the number of citrus fruits.

Frequently Asked Questions About Carolina Reaper Peppers
Can a Carolina Reaper kill you?
No. For a person who is not allergic to fruits, capsaicin, or any of the particular natural chemicals in the peppers it will likely not kill you. If you have any underlying medical conditions, talk to your doctor before consuming them. The pain you feel is actually limited to mammals. For birds, they do not have the same pain receptors as mammals and do not even notice the heat. Birds are said to experience no adverse reactions to eating peppers. It is thought this is by nature’s design as this allows the birds to eat the peppers and transport the seeds to faraway lands, thus ensuring the survival of the species.
What is hotter than a Carolina Reaper? Nothing is officially hotter than a Carolina Reaper Pepper according to Guinness World Records. Ed Currie, the cultivar (breeder), of the pepper is said to be trying to get a new cultivar called Pepper X officially certified as the newest hottest pepper. The process takes a very long time as it is very time-consuming and rigorous.
