Black Pearl, an edible ornamental pepper from Agricultural Research Service scientists in Beltsville, Md., has been named a 2006 All-America Selection. The award recognizes new flowers and vegetables that demonstrate "superior garden performance" in trials conducted throughout the country.

Black Pearl was first offered to growers and gardeners in 2005, after years of testing. Its black leaves and dense clusters of round fruits that ripen from black to red make it an especially eye-catching plant. In addition, it is drought-hardy and tolerant to attack by common insect and disease pests.

PanAmerican Seed Company, Elburn, Ill., helped test the plant and entered it in the national competition.

For details contact: John R. Stommel, (301) 504-5583, or Robert J. Griesbach, (301) 504-6574; USDA-ARS Henry A. Wallace Agricultural Research Center, Beltsville, Md. email: stommelj@ba.ars.usda.gov; griesbar@ba.ars.usda.gov
