Default Don't we love Chocolate Habs?

What a beautiful pepper - and makes a perfect pico de gallo.

Those are beautiful! Is the flavor hab-like?

I'm growing chocolate habs for the first time this year. They are supposedly the hottest of the hab varieties. I'm also growing some large orange habs. My habs have always been small, but this year; both varieties I'm growing are huge and beautiful.


I got some dried orange habs from my son last fall for the seeds. His have always been twice the size of my orange habs. I planted three plants from the seed I harvested. Two plants produced the normal looking, but larger orange habs. The third plant produced peppers which look identical to ghost peppers until they ripen to bright orange instead of red.


I'm having a lot of fun growing Bishops Crown this year. I let them ripen on the plants and then give them away. I tell people to take a small bite of the pepper. They comment how good they taste with almost no heat. I then tell them to take a second bite with a few seeds in the bite. When their eyes stop watering, about all they can say is wow. They are not terribly hot, but your not expecting the heat in the seeds and membrane.

Those chocolate hands look beautiful!



I am also growing bishops cap, but they are looking less and less cap like. Should I be "worried" ?

I've grown Bishop's crown a few times in the past and I really like them, but the only distinguishing feature in my mind is their shape. They are thin wall peppers and dry easily. They always grow on large plants and produce abundantly. The mid summer peppers seem much smaller than the spring and fall peppers and the over all shape seems to change a little from the early and late season peppers. Early fall peppers seem a little larger than spring or summer peppers. Those are my observations in my garden.

The smoke is what distinguishes them, nice size on those. I've got a few good specimens of 7potChoc.
