Pepper (Sweet) - Chocolate Bell

$299 USD

The Chocolate Bell Pepper is a fun one to grow. While the skin is maturing from green to brown, the inside is ripening from green to red, so you’re in for a surprise color combo with each one you snip off the vine. Crunchy and sweet with no heat. Ripens early, too. Pair with Chocolate Cherry Tomatoes on a bed of Red Romaine Lettuce for a delightful dark salad.
