How to Grow Chocolate Habanero Chilli Seeds


The Chocolate Habanero, also known as ‘Congo Black’, is a lantern-shaped chilli that matures to a rich chocolate brown hue. It’s a vibrant addition to gardens, offering fiery heat and aesthetic beauty.

Growing Tips:

  • Starting Off: Sow seeds 1/4″ deep in pots filled with quality seed compost. Ensure the soil remains moist.
  • Germination: Seedlings are expected to emerge within 10-21 days at temperatures of 23.9°C or above.
  • Transplanting Seedlings: Once the seedlings have developed two pairs of leaves, transplant them to individual pots.

Growing and Caring for Your Chocolate Habanero Chilli:

  • Plant Characteristics: The Chocolate Habanero typically reaches a height of 70-80 cm. It produces white flowers, either singly or in clusters of two. The chilli pods that develop measure 3.5cm – 6cm in length and 2.5cm – 5cm in width.
  • Soil and Watering: Opt for well-draining soil and water consistently, ensuring the soil doesn’t become waterlogged.
  • Location: Choose a sunny, sheltered spot. These chillies prefer warmth and direct sunlight for most of the day.
  • Maturity: Typically, these chillies mature within 90 to 100 days. To ensure they reach maturity before the UK’s colder months, plant early in the season.

Harvesting Your Chocolate Habanero Chilli:

  • Appearance: Harvest when the chillies change from green to a deep chocolate brown. Be cautious; their heat intensifies as they mature on the plant.
  • Safety Precaution: Due to their extreme heat, handle with care. Wearing gloves and washing hands after handling is recommended.


The Chocolate Habanero is a captivating and spicy addition to gardens in the UK, offering both a challenge and reward for gardening enthusiasts.
