Northamptonshire, United Kingdom
I have quite a few plants which are producing healthy and tasty green peppers. One of the plants is fruiting black peppers, which are rich in colour and have a wonderful sheen to them. I have never seen these anywhere before, and wonder if this is normal and if they will be safe to eat.
They are the same size and shape as the green variety, but I have yet to taste one as I am uncertain if it is safe to do so.
Any ideas?? Just to clarify with reference to the posibility that these peppers are perhaps ripening to red, they grew a deep black from the outset.
