The unique ornamental pepper Black Pearl rightly bears the name black pearl. Its berry-like fruits ripen from green to black to red. Of course, the fruits, which look like small cherries, are edible. A pleasant, medium sharpness then spreads in your mouth and brings a smile to your lips. Because Black Pearl Chilis taste damn good.
In the direct sun the leaves turn to a dark violet. Depending on the light conditions they appear pitch black. This makes the small chili plants on balcony, windowsill and any other place an enrichment of their surroundings. A lot of light, warmth and slightly moist soil are important at the location.
This ornamental pepper is only about 40 to 50 cm high. Its compact growth makes it a perfect candidate for cultivation in a tub. Ideal as a houseplant in the house or on the balcony. When the berries ripen from black to red, an intense paprika aroma forms.
The degree of spiciness is balanced, not too spicy and also not boringly mild. By drying and then grinding, their pods become an intense paprika spice.
