Give your garden a chic and attractive new plant with the stunning Black Pearl pepper plant. A gorgeous ornamental variety, this pepper plant received the AAS award in 2006 for its unique characteristics of dark foliage and eye-popping fruits.

The Black Pearl grows up to 2 ft. tall and bodes well in containers. These plants produce dark purple/black foliage with beautifully contrasting lilac flowers. Pods will reach 1/2” in length, starting out as shiny, round green pods that change into a deep purple before reaching its mature, vibrant red.

Black Pearl peppers are edible but be prepared for a biting heat! Most ornamental peppers have a neutral (or peppery) flavor, but the Black Pearl has a flavor similar to a Red Bell pepper. Use these peppers for cooking and grinding up into a powder or into pepper flakes to use sparingly on your food. Or you can also leave these peppers alone and enjoy the stunning display of this beautiful ornamental plant.
