Ornamental Pepper ‘Black Pearl’
2006 AAS Winner. Black Pearl is a handsome plant with black foliage. But the standout quality is that Black Pearl looks better as the summer season progresses. The plant branches out, producing more clusters of black, pearl-like, shiny peppers. The plant grows taller and wider developing into a black pyramid shape without pinching, pruning, or grooming. Black Pearl is exceptionally heat-tolerant and requires minimal water and fertilizer. It is easy to grow from seed, bedding plants or pot plants with fruit set. There are no serious insect or disease problems. As the plant matures, the black peppers turn red, adding a new color to the plant. While edible, the peppers are very hot. Use with care! Black foliage is very trendy, and Black Pearl delivers true black leaves to the full sun garden. Black Pearl is an effective background plant particularly with silver, white or pastel flowering annuals in the foreground. Please call the store (740)763-2873 for availability, prices, and sizes.
