Sure you know what chocolate is, and if you’re any bit of a hot pepper fan, you have an idea of what a habanero is. But what is a chocolate habanero? It’s not a line of spicy candies, that’s for sure. No, this is a cultivar of habanero peppers, like the Red Savina habanero, that packs a serious punch. In fact, it’s even spicier than the Red Savina with unique earthy and smoky undertones that complement their typical habanero sweetness.
A rare Habanero, bearing deep red-brown fruits that have a beautiful chocolate look to them. Flavor is extremely hot and comparable to the Red Habanero. Peppers grow to 1-2". A beautiful ornamental having a fiery flavor! For more mild peppers water liberally and for hotter peppers stress the plants by only watering after they wilt slightly
