The Black Olive Pepper was awarded the 2012 Flowering Plant Award from the All-America Selections, and there’s no dispute on why. This is a multi-use ornamental pepper plant that looks stunning AND grows peppers that can be used for almost anything!

This compact plant barely makes it to 2 ft. tall and grow dark-purple bushy foliage with green stems and bright purple flowers. These peppers get their name from their shape, which looks like a small black olive growing on the plant. As they mature, the peppers turn from their purplish black color to a deep red. A very easy plant that grows annually, they resist heat and humidity, keeping their elegant colors and features intact.

Beware: the little Black Olive peppers have a bit of a bite to them! While edible, these peppers are very spicy and vary in heat like other ornamentals. If you do use it in your cuisine, try it out cooked in your food, chopped up in fresh salad or salsa, or give your homemade sauce the kick that it needs! These peppers can also be pickled, as they have a long shelf-life.
