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.

What are the pros? Attractive plant; fun to grow

What are the cons? slow maturity; no fruit

Review:

These are pretty cool plants. I studied up on them a lot before I got the seeds. So, I know my experience isn't everyone's, and they are supposed to taste pretty awesome. I started these indoors super early. Unfortunately, not early enough, and I crowded the plants (so that probably delayed the maturity, too). I planted them outdoors, probably with too much potassium and calcium and not enough phosphorus and nitrogen (and probably not enough magnesium either). I did give them basalt rockdust, worm castings, rock phosphate, potassium sulfate and maybe other stuff at planting time, however. Anyway, they grew leaves super slowly, and they didn't flower. So, I think they needed a lot more nitrogen (for growth), and phosphorus (for maturity and flowering). They had plenty of potassium and calcium (probably too much). It was a really hot year, too. So, that may have had something to do with it. The soil was clay-loam.

This is our second year growing this pepper. It now has a permanent spot in our garden. Great habanero flavor, and great producing plants.

Review:

In my 2nd summer with the same plant (Zone 6a). Last year I put my seedling into a SIP (sub-irrigated planter) container, and it grew moderately, produced some fruit late (summer 2014 was cool, and hot peppers like heat). A SIP container does not use very nutritious soil, I continually had to feed the plant which is normal for SIP gardening. Decided last year to bring the plant into my sun room for the fall to let the last fruit turn to its customary chocolate brown. I largely ignored the plant after that, occasionally remembering to water it during the winter. Leaves dropped off & it went dormant. In early spring 2015, I started watering and feeding it again, and it took off like a shot! This year the plant is huge and dripping with habs. I've had to readjust what I feed it (making sure to use Epsom, liquid organic fertilizer, etc) as it was drooping in midsummer. This plant is great for container gardening if you want to winter it over! Be sure to harden off slowly in spring!

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.

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.
