So beautiful. The chocolate-brown, lantern shaped fruit are about 2 inches long, and so ornamental! But don't let the color fool you; these are not candy, but rather flaming-hot fruit that carry a massive 300,000 Scoville units of heat! Hot pepper enthusiasts love the heat and flavor that these chocolate fruit are packed with, but be careful and use in moderation.

Review:

I had no problems with the seeds sprouting back in Feb. and put them in the ground shortly after the last frost. I have great plants but that is it. No blooms or fruit. I was so looking forward to these cause they are my first try at Habaneros. I will try again next year in a different location.

What are the pros? Grows true to seed, very Hardy

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted several peppers this year grown from seed sourced here and all of them have grown true to seed. The Chocolate Habs, I worried would take the whole season to ripen, but they were the first variety to ripen for me. Seeds were started indoors in Dec, they germinated sooner than expected and stalled root bound in coffee cups. When I started the rest of my pepper seeds I potted these up to 32 oz foam cups. I planted outside in 5 gal pots in late April and have a dozen ripe pods nowadays July. The flavor is great, hot like orange habanero but just better. I will plant these again for sure.

Review:

I have a lot of exoerience growing chinense species and they can be finicky. We have alkaline soil and water so some of these steps are adjusting for that, plus we grow in pots. Here are a few tips for those of you who want to try: 1. DO NOT USE ANY FORM OF PEAT IN YOUR SEEDS STARTING MIX, I prefer Miracle Grow's Organic Mix as a starter. 2. BOTTOM HEAT - invest in a heating pad. If the starter pots are kept at 78-85 Deg. F you will have a much higher and faster germination rate. 3. when transplanting, mix in 1 cup each of balanced fertilizer (13-13-13) and bone meal and 2-3 Tbsp of Epsom salt (Magnesium) in the soil under the plant. 4. Water in with Seaweed/Fish emulsion solution or Medina Plus 5. Alternate weekly feedings with Fish emulsion/Seaweed or Medina one week, 1 Tbsp per gallon Epsom salt solution second week. 6. Monthly alternating feedings of Bone meal and a 2-3-3 granular fertilizer. 7. Once every 4-6 weeks, use a vinegar watering solution (1 Tsp/gallon 22% agri vinegar)

What are the pros? Unique Variety

What are the cons? Difficult to germinate

Review:

I was excited to get this unique variety of seeds. I've got all my other pepper plants growing and started them from seed as well. No details on the packet for germinating these seeds in a unique or different way. My first try at 2 seeds in each section of my six pack resulted in nothing germinating. I'm in the process of trying one seed with a different container and new seeds starting mix. Hoping to get something. Very disappointing. Seed viability is so low on these I wouldn't recommend them.

What are the pros? Love the taste and heat....

What are the cons? Huh?

Review:

I grow these every year. I have a local green house start my seeds in March, then put them in the ground late May (after it quits freezing here). When I plant them in the ground I use Epson salt, 1 Tbls per gallon of water. I was having wrinkeled leafs, and this cured that. Egg shells around the plants. They love the sun, and lots of water. I start getting peppers in 7 weeks, and a lot. My friends and I get to eat fresh ones through the summer, freeze a few at the end of the season, then dry enough for a half of a coffee can to eat and give away. Addicted to the taste and warmth, but most people can't handle this kind of heat.... still try to convert people.
