A unique and tasty sweet pepper, Chocolate Beauty Bell is a crowd pleaser!
If you are looking for a new twist on a summer vegetable garden classic, try planting a chocolate bell pepper plant (Capsicum annuum "Chocolate Bell"). Closely related to the classic green bell pepper, this cultivated variety has dark chocolate colored skin. Bell peppers, including the chocolate bell, need a long, hot growing season. Plant early in the spring and enjoy this tasty novelty when the summer harvest rolls around.
Any pepper that looks so different from the classic green pepper should have a unique taste and the chocolate bell doesn't disappoint. The peppers start out green and look just like other bell peppers in the garden, but then the fruit starts to turn deep chocolate brown as it ripens. The flesh inside is crispy, sweeter than a classic bell pepper and dark red in color. The sweet taste and deep color inside and out make this bell ideal for dressing up a summer salad and it will freeze well for a winter treat.
A soil temperature between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal for starting chocolate bell pepper seeds. When starting seeds in a greenhouse or indoors, a seed heating pad works well to increase the soil temperature. Plant the seeds 1/4 inch deep in the soil and kept moist during germination and seedling development. You can expect germination in six to 12 days after planting the seeds. Once the seedlings are 4 to 6 inches tall, they are ready to go out in the garden.
