A Spice Lover’s Dream
Aromatic whiffs of ripe peppercorns on the vine lead to hot and pungent tastes when dried. Spikes of creamy yellow flowers adorn the vine amid glossy green almond-shaped leaves. Glistening green pods ripen to a bright red.
The beauty of the fruits is that you can pick them at any stage and still enjoy the sublime taste. Pick them green, dry for three weeks in the sun, and enjoy ground green peppercorns. Or remove the red hull to reveal white fruits that can be dried for a milder taste. The traditional black pepper is done by drying with the red skin on and then ground for the spiciest taste of the three.
Unleash your cooking prowess on any dish, from spaghetti to meat marinades. Plus, you’ll enjoy the peppercorns’ nutritional benefits, which are used to prevent numerous digestive ailments.
Limitless Design Potential
The cooking opportunities are endless. And so are the landscape ideas. Add to a trellis or a wall, and the vine can climb up to thirty feet. Your neighbors will wonder what’s going on behind your gorgeous privacy hedge. Pepper plants dislike cold temperatures, but don’t worry if you live more north. The vine grows amazingly indoors! Imagine your guests’ looks when they see a lush vine ripe with colorful berries among your other houseplants.
The plant’s looks are diverse, but the maintenance is low. Pests and disease are uncommon. You can typically spray a jet of water to get rid of insects. Fertilize organically in the spring for happy production. Your Black Pepper Plant loves all types of well-drained soils and prefers partial shade with high humidity. Pruning leaves are a cinch. Just get rid of any dead leaves at the beginning of the season. Not much work for such a royal plant!
