Black Pearl Ornamental Pepper

The first of its kind for ornamental peppers and an All American Selection winner in 2006. Compact plants have semi-glossy, dark purple to true black leaves with pearl-like, bubbly clusters of 1/2" fruits that start out shiny black, eventually maturing to red. A vibrant, unique accent to a bedding or container garden. Peppers are edible but very hot. Grows 16-20 inches.
