That's the part I was wondering.  Technically, it should say "Smokin Ed's Carolina Reaper" but instead listed the cross.  Could this be a sign in fact of it being a lesser generation than the supposed F8? Possible it's from samples he sent a long time ago?  According to those guys he has been sending stuff for quite a while now. 

 

I also wonder why the website hasn't been updated yet?  I doubt it's fake at all.  Don't think he'd risk everything over fake documents.  I would think guinness would want to update the site asap though.

you are correct who knows.

 

well i know two simple things

 

the only sweet habanero there is, is Zavory and never heard/seen, any Nagas come from Pakistan. Actually Pakistani pepper are most if not all are  C.Annuum and C. Frutescens. never seen a C.Chinense from Pakistan .

 

i could be wrong 

 

or officially wrong  ;)

Yea, I understand with all the crazy stuff surrounding this variety.  However, have to give credit where it's due.  I'd be stoked as shit to have a record, regardless of its category.

The credit goes as the follow:

 

First credit goes to the sweet Habanero which met the Pakistani Naga in Ed's greenhouse to deliver the baby "reaper", which grew up to become BIG and Bad using promotions and adds then had its name listed by the chili Goddess "Guinness" 

 

 

anyways whats for dinner?

it is official and it is not a primo, I wasnt aware a primo averages 1.5 mill and peaks at 2.2 mil..oh yea..it doesnt (it was tested)

I also grow thousands of each and can say for 100% certainty they are not the same pepper. Is a black naga and chocolate bhut the same? How about a moruga and brainstrain (red or yellow). shall I go on because I can name quite a few chile peppers that "look" the same.

 

the name on the "sample" isnt going to be on the final doc he gets in 10 days. The Official name is (and always has been) Smokin Eds Carolina Reaper which he also just got the official trademark for this past week. 

 

There will always be doubters and there will always be those who gawk at those that have actually done something very unique. So be it.

I have the official documents from them in my inbox directly from them. It is legit and it is the record. Ed will have the official document in 10 days and I would assume in that same time frame the Guinness site will be updated accordingly. 

 

oh and I had to edit for the comment about what he paid Guinness for the record.

1. Do some fact checking..you dont Pay them for any record of any type, they are the record keeper, nothing more. They dont do the testing

2. IF you choose to pay them money they will expedite the fact checking process but that is all

3. A lot of money was spent yes, but that was on developing, growing and testing for many years.

 

and FYI..the heat from this is the same that it was last year when it was announced he had the hottest. The record took forever because there was a lot that went on with Guinness behind the scenes that your not aware of that hindered him "officially" getting it. It had nothing to do with the data or the pepper. It is and has been the hottest since it was released last year
