Chocolate Brownie Sweet Pepper (Capsicum annuum) More pepper than plant on this compact version of Chocolate Beauty. A market gardener from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia sold me on these very sweet brown peppers and WOW! They are a thick walled pepper that ripens from green to reddish-brown and taste exceptionally sweet when mature. Also, very good disease resistance and early maturation similar to Chocolate Beauty in the 70-75 day range. They are also slightly more tolerant of light frost vs other sweet bell peppers.
