Hot Chilli Pepper Habanero Chocolate

Hot Chilli Pepper Habanero Chocolate. An extremely hot variety producing heavy yields of 2″ long by 1 ¾” wide wrinkled hot peppers, which turn from green to a rich chocolate when mature.  The plants can reach 3ft but take longer to mature than others, so best started early. Rated as 425-600K Scoville units, this is a real chilli experts chilli with a rich fruity/smoky flavour.  These can be sometimes difficult to germinate if conditions are not ideal, but well worth the effort.  Being perennial they can be over-wintered inside to produce an early crop the following year.
