Capsicum annuum ‘Black Pearl’ (Pepper) [12 Seeds]

(1 customer review)


Germination Information: Sow the seeds indoors, about 1/4″ deep, in late winter to early spring and set them in a warm, bright place. Providing supplemental heat with a seed-starting mat can greatly enhance germination and the growth of the seedlings. Be aware that it’s normal for the young seedlings to have variable amounts of purple and green in their leaves; they will all darken later. Wait a week or two until after your last frost date to move the seedlings outdoors; pepper plants will sulk if they get chilled.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

‘Black Pearl’ pepper (Capsicum annuum) is prized for its ornamental qualities: its glossy, near-black leaves, small purple flowers, and shiny, clustered fruits that start out black and ripen to rich red. It’s not just a pretty face, though; if you can handle the heat, the fruits are edible, too: medium-hot when black to pretty powerful when red-ripe. The bushy plants reach about 18 inches tall and are gorgeous in containers as well as in beds and borders. Full sun. Annual in most climates.

2021-collected seeds sold out. I hope to collect again in fall 2022. At least 12 seeds.

    These are just starting to set little peppers, and of the 2 plants i have, one is the most gorgeous ebony black and the other is green with some black splashes. Can’t wait to try the peppers. They grow easily and will definitely be a staple in future gardens, for color alone.
