Hot Peppers (for Salsa)

Ive been asked by several friends to make a batch of salsa with some extreme heat in it, apparently the 9 habanero peppers and various other hot peppers that I put into wasn’t hot enough for them. Ive been looking around for some ghost or reaper peppers but i am unsure where to buy them. I hope to grow my own next year to go along with the four other hot peppers that I do grow.

So if anybody has any suggestions on what pepper to use and where I can buy them I would greatly appreciate it. I don’t know once you get into the peppers that are rated hotter than a habanero if you can taste a difference in them or not.

    I dont think you will find them in any store. Your best bet is to find someone that grows them.

      Yeah my wife looked at several different paces and couldn’t find anything hotter than a habanero. Charlie is working on getting me a few reapers from one of his friends that grows them.
