73 days - Chocolate Beauty turns from a green to an attractive chocolate color. The sweetness of this pepper will surprise you. Can be harvested green, but leave plenty on the plant to mature to a rich chocolate brown. That's when they're sweetest and have the most vitamin C. 'Chocolate Beauty' is one of the first to mature under cool summer nighttime temperatures. Bears 4-5 thick-walled peppers per plant. These medium-large smooth, 3-4 lobed fruit will add color to your veggie platters and cooked cuisine.
