The Sweet Chocolate Heirloom Bell Pepper is open-pollinated. It ripens to a deep chocolate brown on the outside and a deep red on the inside. Known for its sweetness, it's a three-lobed, long-gated pepper. This is one of the best Heirloom bell peppers out there, and you won't find these at a supermarket because the seed is hard to find. To our farmers market friends, this variety will bring a premium and your customers will be coming back for more. Bell peppers like heat, so start your seeds 6 to 8 weeks before your last frost. After about 75 days, you can start picking your Sweet Chocolate Heirloom bell peppers. Happy growing!!!
