We BEAT the REAPER! ® --with the Chocolate Champion
--CHOCOLATE CHAMPION (C. chinense). Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper® old record of 1,569,300 Scoville heat units, has now been eclipsed by the Chocolate Champion at 1,662,000 Scovilles, after testing a composite of 10 dried peppers, and Guinness has been notified, so they can confirm this new World Record.
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.
"Chocolate Champion" is a trademark owned by the Redwood City Seed Company, with the following procedures for commercial use--NURSERIES can sell plants and PRODUCE GROWERS can sell fresh fruit without a license.
NO reselling or selling of these seeds for planting is allowed currently. ANY dried pepper, sauce, salsa or processed pepper sales require a license plus an annual license fees. BUYERS agree not to take transport, mail, ship, or send seeds, or plant these seeds, outside of the USA borders.
This pepper is so hot, that a single ounce of dried Chocolate Champion fruit would make 1,000 gallons of salsa detectably hot. This new variety is not a cross or a hybrid, it is a "sport", which is the selection method that Luther Burbank used to discover all of his new varieties. By being a sport instead of a cross or hybrid, you are able to save your own seeds from your garden if you choose.
Buyers assume all risks when using or injesting this pepper. DO NOT handle the pods with bare hands, always wear gloves and a breathing mask when working with this pepper.
DO NOT eat the whole fresh as the results could be fatal. NEVER offer it to anyone to eat, as a joke, because that joke could end up in a death. For this reason, buyers agree when they purchase this variety, NEVER to use the Chocolate Champion in any pepper-eating contests, and you agree that you are solely responsible for the use or misuse of this pepper.
Maximum FIVE packets per individual gardening customer February to July 1, 2018. Maximum of 50 packets for pepper plant nurseries.
