Poisonous pepper
E. Spencer Toy

Poisonous pepper

No, it’s not actually going to poison you, but the fruits of this ‘Black Pearl’ ornamental pepper definitely look like lethal little capsules, especially when they ripen to bright red. The black foliage gives this plant even more interest in the garden.

To grow: As you would any other pepper—a summer annual in full sun and with great drainage.
