Product Description

HOT PEPPERS: When Wilbur Scoville first devised a means to test the heat of peppers, his hottest entry then came in at 20,000 units. Habanero and Thai chilies can go as high as 60,000. Compare that to the sweet bell pepper at zero. When hot peppers are consumed, capsaicinoids bind with pain receptors in the mouth and throat that are responsible for sensing heat. Once activated by the capsaicinoids, these receptors send a message to the brain that the person has consumed something hot. The brain responds to the burning sensation by raising the heart rate, increasing perspiration and release of endorphins. Hot peppers should be eaten with caution!

Black Pearl Hot Pepper: 2006 AAS Winner. This first completely black-leafed pepper is a great choice for containers or planting in the garden. Foliage turns from greenish to glossy black with maturity, aided by the sun and heat. Very shiny black fruit matures dark red. Very, very hot! 14 to 18 inches high, spreading 12 to 16 inches. Grow as an ornamental, or in the vegetable garden, or both!
