Black Pearl (Capsicum annuum)

This plant was a 2006 AAS Garden Award winner. It is considered ornamental because of it's almost black leaves and fruit that ripens from black to dark red. The Black Pearl chile plants grow to almost 2 feet in height so is ideal for container growing. The fruit of the Black Pearl chiles are very hot and have a bitter hot flavor similar to Thai chiles.

At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to try it yourself contact us for seeds, plants (March-August) and fresh chiles (September).

We also grow the Trinidad 7 Pot, Trinidad Scorpion, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant varieties!
