Organic Sweet-Chocolate Pepper Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Sweet-Chocolate Pepper seeds take 58 days to produce green, and 78 days for sweet brown/red peppers. A beautiful pepper that ripens to a unique chocolate brown with a brick red interior. Peppers taper to a blunt point and have a medium thick flesh. The taste is sweet and mild and the fruits ripen early, ensuring a long picking season. Productive even when nights are cool.
Start peppers indoors 8 weeks before your frost free date. Sow seeds .5 cm deep and keep warm (27-32˚C). Pepper seeds germinate slowly in cool soil. Move seedlings into larger cells or pots when first set of true leaves appear and keep plants warm. Plant out into well drained, fertile soil rich in phosphorus and calcium once there is no chance of frost and the soil has warmed. Row covers and black plastic mulch can extend the season by providing extra warmth.
