Saving Seed from Royal Black Pepper - red or black pods?
I have some Royal Black peppers that I have been growing from the original seed that I purchased many years ago. I isolated some plants this year, but the pepper pods are still black (full size, but not red). Can I save seed from these peppers or do they need to turn red? I've been protecting the plant from frost, but I don't think I'll be able to extend the season much longer. I love this plant - the leaves are a gorgeous jet black and I would hate lose it.
