I'm trying to grow the Carolina Reaper chili pepper.
Searching for "carolina reaper seeds" on Amazon shows quite a few scams. Some reviewers say after waiting months for the pepper to grow, they found out that they were sold common varieties of seed, such as cayenne or banana pepper.
I've also come across listings that sell the whole Carolina Reaper pepper, but in dried form. These should be undeniably the Carolina Reaper because you can clearly see the shape of the vegetable. I'm wondering if the seeds inside dried vegetables are still viable. That is, can they still germinate? I hope the drying process didn't kill the seeds.
