Chilli Black Pearl is one of the most beautiful chilli plants around. It's a jewel plant and a treasure worth seeking. This is a stunning ornamental pepper plant – incredibly one of the most beautiful plants of any kind on the planet – and its chillies contain a surprising pop of heat.
It's so beautiful that All America Selections (AAS) awarded it for its beauty in 2006.
The leaves range from a deep purple to an onyx black in hue, and the plant blooms beautiful purple flowers. The chilli fruits are tiny, closer to chiltepin or pequin peppers in size than typical long chillies. Unripened Black Pearls take on a similar onyx black colour, and as they age, they turn shades to a sultry crimson red. There's no other way to say it – this is a stunning plant. No wonder it's such a favourite for ornamental landscaping.
How to Germinate Chilli Seeds
First, do not forget that chillies are subtropical to tropical vegetable plant and love the heat. You MUST ensure that the chilli seeds' soil temperature MUST remain between 28 - 30 °C, 24x7 – Day & Night. So if you live in Australia's cool & temperate climate zone, you need to invest in seedling heat with a thermostat without any doubt. If you don't want to invest in seedling heat mat & thermostat, then you need to wait until summer to start the Chilli. Simply keeping seeds in the greenhouse (which may have a temperature drop below 10 °C on many nights even in late Oct to late November to the many parts of Australia), may yield poor germination result.
Patience is a virtue! It can take up-to minimum 2 weeks to 4 weeks maximum before first seedlings will sprout.
It would be best if you made sure to measure the heat of the soil by putting the thermometer inside the soil of the seedlings. Make sure that soil does not dry out, but make sure they are not too wet either because this will make the seeds susceptible to fungal pathogens
We suggest storing our seeds in the refrigerator in the given plastic clip lock until seeding them up. Please make sure that you do not get any moisture in the bags
And last but not least, the ultra hots chillies are very temperamental and take a great amount of love and care + CONSTANT and EXACT warm soil (28 - 30 °C), 24x7 – Day & Night!
