Black ornamental chilies

Growing chili peppers
May 07, 2009

This year I'm growing many dark chilies plants. They haven't bloomed yet, but their leaves makes them already interesting.

TraviataThis is Traviata pepper from azienda Stuard (Italy), with its black leaves.

Black PearlThe Black Pearl with variegated leaves. The pods will resemble black pearls: small, round and black, ripening to bright red.

Black CubanThis is a Black Cuban young plant, with its dark leaves.

Aussie BlackThe Aussie Black will produce black pods that turn red when ripe.

Purple PrinceThat's my favourite, the Purple Prince with its variegated leaves.
