Chocolate Ghostly Reaper
This is a newer crossbreed that combines the formidable heat of the Reaper with the distinct look of the Chocolate Ghost. This pepper is not for the faint of heart; it boasts a Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) rating of well over one million, placing it firmly in the superhot category. Visually, this pepper leans more towards its Chocolate Ghost parentage. Make no mistake, the heat level is nothing short of scorching. It’s a pepper that commands respect and should be handled with extreme caution.
It’s worth noting that this is a newer cultivar and may exhibit some instability. This means that future generations could show variations in texture and shape. However, one constant that will remain is the extreme heat level. Whether you’re growing it for the third or the fifth generation, you can expect a pepper that packs a serious punch.
This pepper prefers a warm, sunny environment and well-drained soil. Given its superhot nature, it’s advisable to keep those kids away!
