--CRAIG'S CHAMPION™ Chocolate Habanero pepper (C. chinense). The old record for Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper® has now been eclipsed by Craig's Champion™ at 1,662,000 Scovilles, after a lab test of a composite of 10 dried peppers, and Guinness has been notified for confirmation.

Plants grow to four feet tall and 2-3 feet wide, but can grow to 6 feet or more if fed with one cup of liquid fish fertilizer mixed with a gallon of water, plus a hand-full of bone meal watered into the soil surface once a month during the growing season. Fruit ripens to a deep chocolate color about two inches long by one inch across.

This new variety is not a cross or a hybrid, it is a "sport", which is the same method Luther Burbank used to discover all of his new varieties, and the same method used in the 1800s in France by the seedsman Vilmorin to develop the sugar beet. Also, the Navajos in New Mexico use this method to produce the sweetest melons. Being a selection instead of a cross or hybrid, you can save your own seeds from your garden if you choose.

DO NOT eat the whole fresh, as the results could be dangerous to fatal. NEVER offer it to anyone to eat, as a joke, because that joke could end up in an emergency room visit or death. SEEDS ONLY SHIPPED TO USA CUSTOMERS. Buyers agree to all of the terms of sale that are listed at the back of each seed packet.
