Capsicum Seeds - Sweet Chocolate - Certified Organic

Capsicum Seeds - Sweet Chocolate - Certified Organic

(Capsicum annum) 

Sweet Chocolate Capsicum has green fruit ripening to dark chocolate colour and brown-red flesh. Fruit size 15cm x 8cm. This heirloom variety bears fruit that is surprisingly sweet with a unique chocolate hue, making it a visually distinctive part of any garden. Its sizable 15cm x 8cm dimensions make it perfect for adding to salads and salsas.

Pests may include caterpillars and fruit fly. Use Vege Net for good protection against these pests. You can also use pyrethrum and natrasoap against caterpillars.

Capsicums are heavy feeders and side dressings of fertiliser will help them to continue producing over a long period.
