Sorry, Johnny Depp. This 'Black Pearl' is a blessing, not a curse. Named for its nearly black foliage and pearl-shaped peppers that change from black to bright red, it laughs at drought and sparkles like treasure from spring to fall. Arrghh!
PRESCRIPTION FOR SUCCESS: Full sun, well-drained soil. Do not eat the peppers unless licensed to swallow fire.
