This is a Capsicum annuum 'Black Pearl' pepper. At first, I thought this was a "black pepper" variety, but black pepper grows on a vine and is a tropical plant. This is a pepper like chili. It is supposed to be very hot. It is said to have 30,000 Scoville Heat Units. This would do some serious damage to your tongue. As I wander around, I notice all sorts of interesting plants. In fact, I can see a lot of interesting varieties outside my window right now.
