Product Details: The Carolina Reaper is the hottest chili pepper on Earth, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, testing on average at 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). This pepper powder is made from grinding up the dried chile pods and nothing more; it's 100% pure and uncut. We think it smells and tastes similar to habanero peppers, with their fruity, citrus flavor.
Our Spice Jar (containing 1.76 ounces / 50 grams of product) is clear plastic with a black cap featuring a removable safety seal and two flip-top openings, one large enough for a measuring spoon and the other with sprinkle holes.
