Caption: Chilli plant seedling germination. Plastic tub containing Carolina Reaper chilli pepper seeds on moist tissue paper. This procedure prompts the seeds to germinate after five to ten days under warm conditions. They can then be transferred to a heated propagator to grow into seedlings. Carolina Reaper was listed in 2012 by the Guinness World Records as the hottest chilli pepper in the world. On the Scoville scale (a measurement of spicy heat) Carolina Reaper was rated at an average of 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU) with a peak rating of 2,200,000 SHU.
