Hello, I've been looking around for Reapers and Ghosts around my area and the only ones I could find where at my local grocery store in very expensive plastic packs. However I'm sure that these are Scorpion peppers and I can't tell if the ghosts are legit. The labels say Reapers and Ghost Peppers however I'm in doubt so I came here to ask the true Chiliheads on their opinion.

A picture perfect reaper, to me, has the skinny little stinger. But I know not all of the pods on a plant will be perfect. I'm growing promos and dealers this year to see if there is any difference.

Ether way, the peppers you have will be plenty hot, maybe someone else will chime in with experience on the scorpions, I don't think I've grown one.

Are those Freidas produce?

 

They grow Ghost, Reapers and Scorpions (Butch T variety). So if its Friedas it not likely they are Scorpions. The Butch T looks different.

1. Non of the peppers have stingers on them seems to be a trick of the camera

2. No they're Melissas https://www.melissas...&show=15&page=2
