Okay, I'm trying to come up with a zinger about sexual reproduction in plants, but I'm shooting blanks here.

Give me a moment.

I'll be in my bunk.

Yea, that one on the left looks like it's flipping you off! Those are some nice looking pods. They are very bumpy and very consistent looking. These have to be from the same plant, right? Looks like a great plant to use for breeding to make more quality plants. Have you ever bit off the end of one of those tails? It's almost sweet without all the bad burn.

KC - Those are some wicked looking reaper tails. I'm growing two reaper plants this year; and out of several dozen pods on each plant only a few have tails to speak of.

You'll have to let us know if they taste as wicked as they look.

Starting to get Reapers in NJ looks like Im going to have a lot.I deseed before dehydrating all my peppers. No gloves required,you get pretty good at it after about 100 lbs. Then its time to pick more

How depressing.. none of mine have tails, on either of my plants. And I got my seeds from Ed. Mine just look like small bumpy habs (shape wise)... I'll have to take some pics... I'm sad.

Pam, not all of my pods look like those. Here is another pic that shows my last harvest and is more representative... I just isolated those crazy ones for the previous pic.

Again further proof the reaper is over rated
It is very unstable in all aspects of results
I have pods that are no hotter then starfish,I have pods that are more bitter then moruga's(seeds from Currie)
Then I have poster child pods from other seed sources that are true pheno type.

Not hating on the OP crop,but many have stingers of that size pretty regularly.
Its a scorpion strain visual trait nothing more

i had ... keyword had... 3 reaper plants. true to form, easily the heat expected, great taste. the mouth burn was within my tolerance, but the gut burn almost shut me down. problem i have with the reaper is the plant itself. all 3 died for no apparent reason after producing only a few pods. over 500 plants i have and those are the only ones ive lost.pity, i rather liked the flavor.
