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 :)

The guy is a wimp, reapers, bhut's, brain strain, 7pod, douglah's are not that bad.

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
