Description

Chocolate Carolina Reaper Plant – Mature plant, flowering and fruiting.

We have 1 Chocolate Carolina Reaper matured plant that will be available for delivery start of August. The plant has been grown indoors from Feburary this year, and is quite large, measuring over 0.5m tall x 1m wide. The buyer needs to be aware that because this plant has spent its life indoors, come August, the weather outside will still be quite cold. This would mean the plant may experience minimal growth and some leaves and fruit could fall off. There are several ways to combat this.

  1. Place the plant in a greenhouse (if available)
  2. Place a frost cover over the plant which increases the temperature inside the cover. These are available from Bunnings.
  3. Keep the plant indoors under strong 3500K lights and keep the plant warm, till the weather warms up outside in September.

The buyer will accept responsbility for the life of the plant.

Mature plants are only available for delivery within Sydney Metro (no pick up)

Meet the Chocolate Carolina Reaper, the bad brother of the original Carolina Reaper. Similar pheno being shimmery and some with tails, while still being extremely hot just like the Carolina Reaper. For some reason though, this variety’s heat lingers around even longer which seems to be a common trait among several chocolate varieties of super hots.

The chocolate Carolina Reaper is a prolific producer with many more pods produced then the Carolina Reaper. The plant grows compact, similar to the Habanero family.

Species: Capsicum Chinense

Flavour: Just bloody hot!

Colour: Pods ripen from green to a dark chocolate colour.

Heat Level: 10+/10

Scoville Heat Units: 1,569,300+

What’s included

Plants will come in a 100mm peat pot, with a minimum of 8 mature leaves, typically as pictured, unless otherwise noted in the description (i.e. flowering and fruiting plants),

Plants will not come with chillies (unless otherwise noted in the description). Photos of chillies are for illustrative purposes only to show the type and characteristics of the variety.

The peat pot is 100% biodegradable. This means you don’t have to disturb the root system by removing it from the peat pot. Instead you can put the peat pot straight into the ground or into a larger pot, and the roots will continue to grow through the peat as if it wasn’t there.

If you’ve never grown chillies before or gifting this to someone who may not have a green thumb, we send our comprehensive Guide to Growing Chillies with all our plant and seedling orders. You can also check out our frequently asked questions or contact us if you have any other questions.

Care

Chilli plants prefer tropical weather, and typically the best time to plant is in Spring. You will need to determine (based on the climate in your area) when the best time to plant is to avoid damaging or potentially killing the plant if there’s a frost risk.

Our plants require hardening, which means getting them used to the full strength of the sun by increasing their exposure over a 1 week period. Exposing them to full sun straight away may burn the leaves (they turn white and crisp) and stunt growth.

Please be extremely careful when handling chillies from this plant. Anything at or above the Scoville scale of a habanero (300,000 SHU) can cause severe pain if handled incorrectly. Keep out of reach of children. Handle ripe pods with gloves to avoid accidently squeezing the chilli and releasing it’s oils onto your skin. Do not consume on an empty stomach.
