Carolina Reaper Chili pepper

De Carolina Reaper is de allerheetste chilipeper ter wereld

The Carolina Reaper is the hottest chilli pepper in the world. These extremely hot peppers are characterised by their beautiful red colour and wrinkled 'skin'. The tip of this hot pepper is called the 'scorpion tail', it also looks like the sting of a wasp.
