‘Get ready to a heat explosion’
Finally we have a really good strain of the Chocolate Reaper. We have tried for years and now we are happy with the look and the insane heat level.
You will get lots of vicious looking Chocolate Reaper peppers and they will blow your head off. In a pot the plant grows to approximate 70 cm in height and a very busy. If you plant it in a garden bed, it will grow bigger. Ours are in garden beds and grow to over one meter in height.
The pods start off dark green end when they are fully mature, they have a dark chocolate colour. The tail can vary in length.
This outrageously hot pepper would be a great choice for creating your own hot sauce, a chilli salt or powder. If you want to use it for cooking, you will have to be careful as the heat level is extreme.
Warning: Not for the faint-hearted and it will send a non chilli head into panic mode. Use gloves when you handle this variety and have a chopping board, just for super hot peppers.
Growing tip: Shade is what this variety likes, so don’t give it full sun all day.
Pod size: Thin wall and 4-5 cm long & 3 cm wide
Flavour: Sweet & Fruity – if you are able to taste it, because of the heat.
Heat wise: Extreme
