PEPPER
Other Common Names:          Black Pepper, White Pepper, Green Pepper, Pink Pepper.

Botanical Name:                     (Piper nigrum)

Peppercorns are the fruits of a tropical, perennial climber that can reach over 10 m in height. There are over 1000 species in the Piperaceae family, however, those of the greatest importance are the ones that give us peppercorns, cubeb pepper and long pepper (both Indian and Javanese).

HARVESTING PEPPERCORNS IN SOUTH INDIA

Pepper vines are a particularly attractive sight in their native Southern India, where in the western ghats (steps) of Kerala, they are trellised on palm trees, and sometimes eucalyptus, in what the locals charmingly refer to as ‘spice gardens’ rather than plantations.  The pepper vine is not a parasite, so the living tree simply provides an accessible trellis, and its canopy of foliage gives shade for the vine and to the pickers during harvesting. The fruits (peppercorns) form in densely packed spikes 5–15 cm long and over 1 cm wide at the thickest part near the top, then tapering down to 5 mm or less at the bottom tip. Each spike may produce 50 or more single-seeded fruits which, when fully formed, are deep green.
