Harrison Nelson Jr. (b 17 July 1925, Texarkana, Texas - d 19 March 1999, Elizabeth, New Jersey), known as Peppermint Harris, was an American R&B singer and guitarist.

He first recorded in Houston, as Peppermint Nelson, in the late 1940s, accompanied by his friend Lightnin’ Hopkins. He then made further recordings including “Raining In My Heart” for a label run by Bob Shad - who allegedly forgot Nelson’s name and released them as by Peppermint Harris.

In 1951 he moved to Modern Records in Los Angeles, and had his biggest R&B hit with “I Got Loaded”. However, later releases on various small southern California labels were less successful.

He later recorded in Shreveport, Louisiana, and worked in Sacramento and New Jersey, before recording a final album on the Home Cooking label in 1995.
