Plant – Black Pearl Pepper

On Halloween weekend, I found this slightly spooky variety of ornamental pepper. What a perfect name it’s been given: Black Pearl. The leaves of this plant are dark-purple in appearance. As the fruit matures it will change from black to red. The plant prefers full sun and well-drained soil. The peppers are not for comsumption, unless you want to instantly turn into a fire-breathing dragon.

“This pepper boasts the most dramatically deep purple-black leaves and fruit imaginable. The vigorous, bushy plants grow to 18 inches tall and almost as wide. Flowers are lilac, and dark black peppers emerge in fall.” ~ Fine Gardening
