Chocolate Habanero Plant

My co-worker Cathy N. brought me this plant to grow, a chocolate habanero plant!

At 500,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units), this pepper will be so hot that I am not sure I will be able to eat it. That is a crazy heat level, past anything I have ever tried. I don’t have much of a spice tolerance, so I am a little afraid of this thing.

Despite my reservations, I started growing it, and after a couple of weeks, I am already seeing tiny shoots.

I will post an update when the plant is bearing fruit.

Thanks Cathy!
