The famous and flavorful old Japanese pepper from the Nara Prefecture. Tapered black pods are highly ornamental and look deceptively like a fiery hot pepper. In fact, the beautiful fruit is totally heatless. A new favorite at Baker Creek for its dramatic, dark purple fruit and flowers; even the foliage has a purplish haze. Very productive.
