Pepper Georgescu Chocolate - Salt Spring SeedsRegular price $4.00
Romanian heirloom. Good for cooler conditions. Green fruits mature through dark salmon-pink to 5" rich dark chocolate brown, in a fairly short season. Thick-walled, blocky, cylindrical fruit. Excellent flavour.
Start indoors in a warm location 8-10 weeks before setting out. Sow seeds in a flat or pots of the prepared mix, 1/4 inch deep and 2 inches apart. Keep soil moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source as soon as seedlings have 203 sets of true leaves into individual pots or deep flats. Acclimate seedlings gradually to outdoor conditions when summery weather prevails, then set out 2-3 feet apart in rich, well-drained soil.
