The Black Pearl is a gorgeous pepper plant worth showing off. This ornamental pepper plant has dark foliage, and boasts clusters of shiny black pea to marble sized peppers that mature into a bright red. It is the winner of both the 2005 Fleuroselect Quality Mark and a 2006 All-America Selection Award. They are not terribly hot but the heat tends to build slowly but lasts an extremely long time. Has a faint citrus flavor. Definitely an attention grabber.
