GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Black Pearl pepper is a cultivar of Capsicum annuum.
  • It is characterized by distinctive black leaves and fruit.
  • It produces small round black peppers that resemble a pearl, making them an interesting ornamental for the garden.
  • Although the fruits are edible, they have an extremely hot flavor so they are often only grown for their appearance.
  • The plants grow well from seeds started indoors about six to eight weeks.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Plant your ornamental peppers in rich, loamy soil.
  • Generous soil amendments of compost and manure will both improve tilth and add trace nutrients for healthier plants.
  • If your soil is heavy clay, plant your peppers in raised beds or use containers for good drainage.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • It needs no special fertilizer. Just cow dung slurry every fortnight is more than enough for good production.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Ornamental peppers need full sun for the energy to produce flowers and colorful fruit.
  • If you grow these plants indoors, you should use supplemental artificial lighting for healthy plants and good fruiting.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • While ornamental peppers exhibit limited drought tolerance, they do not like to be waterlogged either.
  • Water whenever the soil's surface feels dry, and aim for a moisture level like that of a wrung-out sponge.
