Love the Carolina Reaper? Well, you should try the Chocolate Reaper, a chocolate-colored variation of the Carolina Reaper pepper! The Chocolate Reaper plant will grow to around 3-4 feet and produces many wrinkled brown hot peppers with pointed tips. The Chocolate Reaper pepper has a very strong floral aroma, and its flavor is similar to the Carolina Reaper but with a hint of a smoky taste upfront. We’ve also heard there are hints of cinnamon and chocolate undertones, but you be the judge and tell us! The Chocolate Carolina Reaper peppers will turn from green to brown when it is mature.
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.
