Royal Black peppers add a dark and regal flare to your garden or patio. We’re unsure where this pepper came from, but doesn’t that add to its noble mystique?

This is a great compact plant that grows up to 2 ft. tall with elegant dark purple foliage and black stems. Royal Black pepper plants produce purple flowers and tiny peppers that grow to about an inch long and are shaped like little teardrops (similar to a Pequin pepper). Peppers turn from their dark purple-black color to a deep red color when they mature.

Like other ornamental peppers, the flavor is fairly spicy, and the heat is all over the place. Royal Black peppers have heat levels ranging from 5,000-30,000 SHUs, so you’ll never know how hot your pepper is when you take a bite out of it! Use these peppers to cook into any spicy dish, add them to a delicious sauce or salsa, or just let them grow out and beautify your garden! You can’t go wrong with a majestic pepper like the Royal Black pepper.

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
