Chocolate is the favored Habanero in the Caribbean for making barbeque sauces and marinades. Chocolate Habanero has a unique rich flavor and can be dried and smoked like the Chipotle pepper. 14 to 18" tall plants produce big yields of green fruit that ripen to a chocolate color and measure 2" long x 1-1/2" wide. The fruit are thin-walled and their Scoville heat rating is 100,000 - 350,000. Handle the seeds and fruit with extreme care!
