Black Pearl Peppers

I sowed some seeds of Black Pearl ornamental peppers today in plastic 6-packs in a flat. Watered; went to get plastic to put over them. Buffy chased Ikey, who jumped into the chair, onto the potting bench to escape along the back of a bench and — stepped right into one of my plant cells! Calmly, I got more mix, more seeds, and once the cell was full of medium again, planted two more seeds into the wrong cell. I think I finally got it right. It’s worse than having toddlers, because these two can jump and climb, at least Ike can.

I like Black Pearl because the leaves are dark, the blooms are purple as shown and the fruits are black instead of green, turning red when they are ripe.

    Wow, you have patience! Loads of it! I’d have those peppers just for their flowers – they’re heavenly and bold.

    You take the kitty damage so much better than I! I tend to get upset when my plants are involved.I really like that dark pepper. It is a beautiful shade.
