Leamington, ON – Health-oriented producer Orangeline Farms has managed to fit ‘chocolate’ into their suite of offerings.

Marketed under their Zing! Healthy Foods brand, the new Chocolate Bell pepper offers a uniquely darker colour and sweet taste. It’s sure to attract the attention of foodies and those looking for something to spice up their meals.

“Wanting to bring unique colour, texture and flavour profiles to the marketplace, we took five years of extensive trials and research with different varieties,” says an Orangeline Farms representative. Not to mention the development of proper growing techniques to get the quality, taste and outcome they were looking for.

According to the release, the flesh inside is crisper and sweeter than a traditional bell pepper. How did they achieve this? Well, that’s a secret.

The Leamington-based greenhouse grower is working on a year-round program to grow Chocolate Bell. For now, consumers will have them while they’re available from March to November.
