Georgescu Chocolate Pepper

A fine pepper of Romanian origin. Green fruits mature dark salmon-pink to a rich chocolate-brown in a fairly short season. Compact plants produce an elongated bell-type fruit to 5 inches long, blunt on the blossom end and not quite a bull's-horn shape. Very pretty! Seeds were originally supplied to us by Bulgarian collector Hristo Hristov.

Review:

I grew these in self-watering containers 2016 and roasted froze the ripe fruit for later use. They were good producers that had very high germination (I think 3 seeds in the whole packet didn't make it) although they took almost as long as the giallo corno di toros (10-14 days on average) to actually sprout, making those two slower than even my chinense and baccatum species in 75-85 temps. Soaking overnight seems to help speed them up, even more so with weak chamomile tea and a capful of h2o2 per quart to help prevent damping off with these long germination times. They ripened to a brown that was reddish on the inside, with the roasted diced flesh being a meaty reddish brown. In my opinion, compared to he red and yellow bullhorn-types, these were by far the best with tomato dishes, with the fire-roasted peppers themselves even having a distinct tomato-esque nose to them.

Review:

Solid pepper, the description is spot on: aside from being a little blunter on the end, these were very similar in habit and production to my Cornos. Pretty peppers with a solid flavor.

Review:

These peppers were bigger than the picture led me to believe, which was nice. I got one that was maybe six inches long. They started green, and went from green to brown (no red or pink in between that I saw). The brown ones are kind of red inside, though. The taste was a lot like a bell pepper, sometimes with a slight cherry-type flavor. I've only tasted them brown, though (since I've been letting every last pepper ripen for seed, so far; I think I have enough, though, especially since pepper seeds aren't said to keep as long as tomato seeds). My plants were all grown in partial shade. So, these are at least partially shade-tolerant. They set fruit in really hot, dry temperatures, whereas Ozark Giant and Yellow Monster did not. It was well into the 100's when these were first setting fruit. It got hot early, this year. They got aphids after a while, but after fertilizing with calcium nitrate, and perhaps a temperature change, ladybugs came and ate them all, or something.
