Unique and versatile, the Chocolate Habanero pepper will soon become one of your preferred hot peppers. Also known as the Brown Congo, Chocolate Congo pepper, Black Habanero, or Habanero Chocolate pepper, it is both exotic and an exciting chile to grow.

Chocolate Habanero pepper plants will grow up to 3 ft. tall and produce bountiful yields. Expect these peppers to ripen from green to a rich dark brown, chocolatey color, and the pods will grow about 3 inches long.

With so much flavor and sweetness packed in a Chocolate Habanero, no wonder why this is one of the pepper varieties that EVERYBODY wants! You will notice a sweet, rich, smoky flavor when you take a bite. This is great to make BBQ sauces, salsas, and marinades!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
