Chocolate Beauty Chili Seeds
Info: The Chocolate Beauty is indeed a chocolate brown beauty. As a bell pepper variety, it isnt hot at all, but bears beautiful brown, bell-shaped and sweet-aromatic fruits. Although the peppers can be eaten green, it is not until they have fully ripened that they develop their maximum vitamin content and their sugar-sweet flavour.
The bushy plants are about 60 cm high and are prolific. The fruits can be used green and brown; they can be eaten fresh, give an interesting color to salads and raw salsas, as well as for cooking, frying, filling, barbecued or pickled.
Care: Germination temperature is between 20°C and 28°C (germination period: 7-18 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil and should not be left in standing water. They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more. Take care to place Californian Wonder Bell Peppers in a sunny position when planting them outside (do not do so until after the last frost). To keep them over the winter, cut them back by 20cm after harvesting and place them in a pot in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
