Re: Drought...


near "Black Pearl", I suspect they should come true to type.
They're the only peppers I have, so maybe I should save seed.

BTW, any idea what the Scoville rating would be for Black Pearl?

I started some from seed this year. Have three plants growing in a pot on the deck. Other than admiring them for their decorative quality, I had no plans to consume them. Will probably do so as an experiment, as we love spicy hot dishes. I find the plants so beautiful, I do plan to save seeds. Since I have no peppers anywhere near "Black Pearl", I suspect they should come true to type.

Speaking of peppers, this is the first time I've grown any - It's the ornamental AAS winner, Black Pearl. Mine haven't branched much but have clusters of plack pearl peppers at the tops. "As the plant matures, the black peppers turn red, adding a new color to the plant. While edible, the peppers are very hot. Use with care!" Has anyone ever grown this? What do you do with the peppers?

Or, could they have cross-pollinated with peppers that are hotter? Pepper
specialist, anyone?

I have heard that if peppers don't get enough water they will be hotter.
I
wonder if that could be the case for you?
