Details

We purchased these seeds originally from Michigan Chili Grower. His description from his website: "Very unique pods of unknown origin. I received the seeds as part of a trade in 2019 and decided to grow them out during the '21 season... they did not disappoint. VERY hot pods, bittersweet like dark chocolate, slightly fruity and an earthy undertone. My favorite is the color contrast when allowed to fully ripen (which takes forever). You get these jet black plants loaded with shiny black pods that eventually ripen to a black/maroon that when cut open reveals a blood red interior." Non-Isolated.
