The Thunder Chocolate Cayenne pepper is a new variety cultivated at Innovation Acre through crossbreeding the renowned Red Cayenne and the exotic Thunder Cacho Brown peppers. The hybrid pepper has a striking appearance, bold flavor profile, and a touch of heat that is slightly hotter than the original Cayenne.

The Chocolate Cayenne pepper boasts a rich, deep brown color, setting it apart from the traditional Red Cayenne and Golden Cayenne varieties. Its slender, elongated shape is inherited from the Red Cayenne, while the distinctive chocolate color adds an exciting color variation to the Cayenne pepper family.

The Thunder Chocolate Cayenne pepper’s flavor is a blend of smokiness and fruity undertones. The initial subtle sweetness is followed by a gentle smokiness, making the Chocolate Cayenne a versatile ingredient that enhances both savory and sweet dishes. The fusion of the Red Cayenne's classic heat and the Thunder Cacho Mountain's complex flavor creates a flavorful pepper that has a medium heat level.

Moderately spicy, the Chocolate Cayenne pepper offers a manageable heat as it averages about 30,000 to 60,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). With a nice balance between flavor and spice, it provides a delightful kick without overwhelming heat, making it perfect for those who appreciate a touch of heat without sacrificing taste.

The Chocolate Cayenne pepper is ideal for hot sauces, salsas, and marinades. Its enchanting flavor profile shines when dried and ground into a spicy chocolate powder, elevating desserts, hot beverages, and even savory dishes. Whether incorporated into chocolate-infused dishes or adding complexity to a hearty chili, this pepper is very versatile in the kitchen.

Plants are shipped in 3 inch reusable plastic pots and are approximately 4 to 8 inches tall.
