Where can one buy a few Carolina Reaper chilli peppers in South-Africa?
When I google it, I only get places that sells the seeds. I want a few peppers. I don't want to grow them myself.

I've never once seen anything hotter than a Habanero / Birds Eye in any shops or farmers markets. You might be lucky and find one at a farmers market, but that's quite a specific chilli. Does it have to be that particular chilli or can it be one of the other top 5 hottest chillies?

You can try call these people (just call and ask if they can help you): http://www.chillifarm.com/growing_chillies/the_farm.asp

Someone mentioned there was a farm (in JHB I think) where you can go pick chillies...can't remember much more than that right now (post xmas brainfog). If I speak to them again I'll find out.

Cool, I'll check it out.
I really want the Carolina reaper, it is the hottest chilli in the world at the moment.
I want to give it a try.
I have eaten habaneros many times. It is hot. But I want to try the hottest chilli :)

You will be hard pressed to find fresh reapers. My plant is currently full of them at the moment, few more days and they will be ripe :)

Not sure if you have managed to find any Carolina Reaper chilli's, but you can purchase the dried Carolina Reaper pods from my website:
http://www.drdevil.co.za/

The dried pods are hotter than the fresh chilli's a anyway. You won't taste much as soon as the current world record holder as the hottest chilli starts kicking in. ;-)

I also have capsicum extract that is 16million Schoville Heat units!!! You don't get anything hotter than that!!! I won't however recommend for human consumption, but as a novelty.

Hope that helps

Would be awesome if there was a setup like this here is SA. In England, they are wussies, no Caroline Reaper is featured in this contest. :D
