Product Details

The black pepper plant grows best in moist, well-drained soil and partial shade. It can be planted prior the rainy season and can grow up to 4 metres in height on supporting poles or trellises. It produces alternately arranged, glossy, green leaves and the fruits (drupes) are about 5mm in diameter containing a stone which encloses a single pepper seed. The peppercorns have an aromatic odour and hot, pungent taste. Black pepper plants begin bearing fruits from 2 – 5 years after planting and the dried fruit is popularly used as a spice or seasoning in food preparation.
