Chocolate

Chocolate Sweet Bell OG

(80 days) Open-pollinated. Our warehouse crew is indiscriminate and voracious when it comes to chocolate. But our trial evaluators were much more circumspect, rejecting various strains of chocolate peppers as far too unproductive until we found this Chocolate. Our seed grower reports every plant has at least a dozen fruits, some 20 or 30, so that sometimes plants fall over! Three–lobed 5x2" elongaged tapered fruits turn from green to glossy brown. Once ripe, the thick-walled flesh (burgundy-red inside, chocolate outside) has the taste we sought for so long.

Additional Information

Peppers

Capsicum annuum

For all peppers, days to full-color maturity are from transplanting date.

~160 seeds/g. Capsicum comes from the Greek kapto which means ‘bite.’

Culture: Very tender, will not tolerate frost, dislike wind, will not set fruit in cold or extremely hot temperatures or in drought conditions. Start indoors in March or April. Set out in June. Black plastic highly recommended. Row cover improves fruit set in windy spots. Pick first green peppers when they reach full size to increase total yield significantly. Green peppers, though edible, are not ripe. Peppers ripen to red, yellow, orange, etc.

Minimum germination soil temperature 60°, optimal range 68-95°.

Diseases:

  • BLS: Bacterial Leaf Spot
  • CMV: Cucumber Mosaic Virus
  • TMV: Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Seed-saving tips: Use only the first fruits for seed; allow only 3–4 fruits per plant to grow and remove all others. Fewer fruits = larger seeds = greater seed viability. Later fruits often have germination rates of only 60%.
