Pepper - Sweet Chocolate - Capsicum annuum

Tender Annual This rare, early bell pepper ripens from glossy green to dark-brown chocolate. Its mild taste and unusual color are a great addition to salads or stir fries. The fruit has blunt ends, thick flesh, and is medium in size.

Soil & Water: Peppers require deeply-worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost. Direct seeding is not recommended. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. These peppers may be harvested from the green stage through the color changes. This variety is good frozen whole.

Did You Know? Sweet peppers are loaded with vitamins C and A. Red peppers contain twice the vitamin C and eleven times the beta carotene of green peppers.
