A chocolate-colored bell pepper with a very sweet flavor. It ripens from green to dark brown on the outside and brick red flesh on the inside. This is our earliest pepper to harvest, with the first peppers ripening at around 57 days.

This early bell pepper was bred by Elwyn Meader and introduced by the University of New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station in 1965. The chocolate color skin and the red flesh are beautiful raw in salads and roasted in other dishes.
A very popular variety among home gardeners for their small size, sweet flavor, hardiness, and prolific nature. This bell is a great choice for gardeners with short seasons. Capsicum annuum (57 days) Organic - Heirloom - Open-pollinated - Non-GMO
