Unique and versatile, the Chocolate Habanero pepper will soon become one of your preferred chocolate, hot peppers. Also known as the Brown Congo and the Habanero Chocolate, it is both exotic and an exciting Chile to grow. The pods are slightly larger than the typical habaneros, just 2 inches longer, and they start as emerald-green before ripening to a dark brown color. Just don’t get this pepper mixed up with spicy candy because it packs a MAJOR punch. The flavors consist of earthy, rich, and smoky undertones that complement their typical habanero sweetness. There is so much flavor packed in these little chocolate fruits that you cannot miss out on this!
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
