The Carolina Reaper chili pepper with its stinger tail, is gnarled and bumpy and not to be messed with! At about 4 cm long and 3cm wide, it ripens to red. The Carolina Reaper is not for the faint hearted and should be handled with extreme caution and care! Avoid contact with skin and eyes!!! Recommend using gloves and mask while handling.
