Ornamental Pepper Black Pearl Seeds

Ornamental Pepper Black Pearl Seeds

Capsicum annuum

Item #1262

Annual. One look at Black Pearl and it is easy to see why it won the All-America Selections award. With its distinctive semi-glossy, deep purple to black leaves, and scores of shiny round black fruit, it just gets better as the season progresses; as the plant matures, the black peppers turn red, adding new color and interest. Perennial grown as an annual in all but tropical climates. Easy to grow in the garden, as well as containers.
