Here is the Mini Chocolate Bell Pepper, Capsicum annuum, Scoville units: 000 SHU. This tiny brown bell pepper is a family heirloom introduced to SSE from Lucina Cress who created it since the 1980's. The peppers are about 1.5 inches long and have 3 lobes with a rich chocolate brown color. Plants get to 30 inches and bushy. We found the pepper to be great for pickling! It is a pretty good producer with over 2 dozen fruits per plant. Compact, well-yielding plants. Open pollinated, 65 days.
