Chocolate Habanero - A popular habanero that has a distinct delicious flavor not found in other habaneros. It is sweet fresh and tastes good before the heat. Fantastic in garden salsa. It is the color of chocolate, but has no other similarities!

The chestnut brown pods are 2" long and 1-1/2" wide and grow on 30" plants that produce an abundance of peppers all season long. Capsicum chinense  (110 days)

Heat Level: Get'er Done Hot.  Scoville Heat Units 350,000 - 450,000

~ Packet contains 10 seeds.

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30" apart or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest peppers when they are brown.


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Did not germinate

We planted 20 seeds and did not get a single germination. These were planted next to regular habaneros and we had a 60 percent germination with them. A little disappointed but will probably try one more time for test sake

Ordered lots of different peppers - followed the guidelines - enjoying the process.

I ordered several varieties of peppers, including Chocolate Habanero seeds. The step by step guidelines provided by Sandia seeds were helpful in getting the seeds to germinate and grow. However, of the ten Chocolate Habanero seeds I planted, only 2 germinated. I had 90+% on all the others. Looking at the reviews, it appears I'm not the only one to have an issue with getting Chocolate Habanero seeds to germinate.

I’ve been in the greenhouse business for 24 years and have never had such bad seeds!!! Not one of the 50 seeds germinated! We germinate on heat mats and keep plunging trays in moist biofungusidal soil
I wouldn’t be purchasing anything from your company again!!

Terrible Germination

Thanks for the opportunity to review. I grow several dozen varieties of peppers and all do fine. Your seeds had 20% germination at best. I believe several small seed suppliers distribute your seed as well because other chocolate habanero sources are also compromised this year.
