This ‘Planting Chocolate’ will grow you a whole garden of exotic melons & berry varieties. These descriptions give you a taste of the wonderful harvests you can look forward to:

Cape Gooseberries: The cape gooseberry is native to Brazil and gets its name from the cape-like husk that encloses the berry. They are an excellent source of vitamin A & C and prevent the increase of blood glucose levels.This is the largest chilli pepper in the world! The pods can grow up to 35 cm in length. On average, they are about 20 cm long and 5 cm wide. This easy and vigorous plant remains relatively small compared to the large pods, between 60 cm and 90 cm. The pods color during ripening from green to deep red. This pepper is ideal for stuffing. MILD SHU:500-3000

Hales Best Spanspek: The Hungarian Black is a heirloom chilli from Hungary. They are similar in shape and size to the Jalapeno.  They start as a beautiful purple flower, the fruit then starts green, before turning a glossy black and finally maturing to a bright red. The more they age, the hotter they get.  MILD TO HOT: 5000-10000

Sugar Baby Watermelon: This small, round melon is called an icebox type because it is petite enough to fit in the refrigerator. This heirloom variety is solid, dark green on the outside with a bright red, firm and fine-grained flesh that is super sweet. Watermelon contains high levels of healthy antioxidants, making Sugar Baby a great sweet way to pack in good nutrition. Vines are compact and the melons weigh between 4-5kgs and are 18-20cm in diameter.
